Two Americans & one Frenchman

The way the International Space Station is staffed is that the normal crew of six is periodically rotated with three older crew members returning to earth while three new crew members are sent.

This little vid about how the holiday is celebrated aboard ISS, especially about the food and how that differs between cultures, is presented by the three most recent, Expidition 50, crew members, Shane Kimbrough and Peggy Whitson of NASA and Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency.

I love the way they handle things, the hand-offs and such. So cool!!
