France is a fascinating country, and as you can see by the 500+ posts on my blog, I have a lot to say about this place I now call home. One of the most popular topics on my blog is French culture and it’s one of my favorite things to write about. From silly mistakes and misunderstandings to general “good to know” posts for those of you coming to France, I delight in writing about French cultural differences. As I near my 5th year of blogging at Oui In France, I’m rounding up a big list of my favorite French culture posts. Some are old and have gotten buried in the archives and some are more recent.
