“Coffee to Go; Add Extra Pumpkin!” Plus Other Uniquely American Headscratchers! Episode 156

Today on Welcome Home we’ll talk a little bit about manners, a LOT about international protocol, and a whole bunch of what we do in America that is confusing to the rest of the world. Is it cool to walk the streets with a latte? What about ordering your dinner with extra salt? And how about riding shotgun in a taxi?  You’ll find out what’s hot and what’s NOT around the globe!   Plus, why the World Series may have baseball fans living a lie, go-to karaoke song ideas, and why we’re serving dinner on our salad plates.  All that and more on today’s episode of Welcome Home.  Much of our source material came from this excellent article we enjoyed in Redbook Magazine.
