Christmas How We prepare for Christmas in France In the streets and in the houses, there are Christmas decorations, made with balls, garlands, lights and candles. The windows of the shops are decorated. Decorated christmas trees are installed in the town and village squares, in homes and in the schools. Nativity scenes are also installed in the town halls and sometimes in homes. On the other hand, they are not in the schools because of the principle of neutrality. Children send a letter to Santa Claus where they list their wishes of gifts. In France, the post office hires people to respond to the letters from children, so that all children who have written to Santa Claus can be answered. There are entertainments in the streets with Christmas markets. In general, this is the place to buy products that will be eaten during christmas Eve or Christmas day. But we can also buy gifts for our family and friends or decorations for our christmas tree.It is also an opportunity for children to see Santa Claus and to take photos with him. At home, the Christmas tree is decorated, the child counts down the nights before Christmas from the 1St December with an advent calendar. Every day, they open a new box until December 24. Inside of the advent calendar, there are surprises. In schools, this is the month where we teach our students Christmas carols. In general, Santa Claus comes to the schools and brings gifts to the pupils. In the Christmas choirs, the mostwell-known songsare : Il est né le divinenfant (the divine childwas born ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2QEYNMIem4and Petit papa Noël (little santa claus) : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3onrd_tino-rossi-petit-papa-noel-version_music Gifts : before the gift offered for Christmas was an orange. Now, this celebration has become very commercial (as everywhere) and we offer any kind of gifts (with toys remaining the most common gift and chocolates).Snacks: we install a small snack for Santa Claus (at the foot of the christmas tree), consisting of a biscuit, a glass... to give him strength for his Christmas tour. Special Christmas Food in France As an aperitif, we often drink champagne, this drink is a symbol for special occasions. He is usually accompanied by toast with salmon, foie gras or caviar.Starter, we eat snails, oysters, or frogs legs.The dish, is often composed of a meat like Capon chicken, Guinea fowl, Turkey, duck or goose. This meat is usually accompanied by vegetables or potatoes.Cheese, guests are presented with a cheese tray consisting of several varieties. Dessert, The classic cake is the Yule log. In Provence he is accompanied by 13 desserts (fresh fruit, candies, dried fruits, donuts, nougat, chocolate...). The french are wine lovers. Also, it is customary to drink wine during the meal and we change wine with every dish.

Easter Card Easter is primarily a Catholic holiday widespread in France, where Masses and religious processions take place throughout. But Easter is a day of joy when families and friends get together and enjoy this festive moment to savor delicious food and of course, lots of chocolates. Easter is primarily a celebration in the existing Catholic and Jewish. Both celebrations are somewhat different in their interpretation and organization, but in the end the two religions celebrate the same thing: the resurrection of Christ. Unlike many other countries, and to share in some French regions and overseas, Good Friday is not a holiday. The only holiday during the Easter holidays rest on Easter Monday. But the Easter festivities usually coincide with school holidays; what give children more time to eat chocolates. On Easter is a religious holiday agreement but that mainly hold people, and children in particular are endless meals with many dishes including the paschal lamb. But above all, Easter would not be Easter without tons of chocolate. As in all countries we also have the famous hare Pascal brings us all (even adults; there is no age to be greedy after all!) Many chocolates. But probably because we, French, are very greedy, it's not just chocolate eggs that is claimed to Easter, but also chocolate fish (in reference to April Fool April 1) and of course the bells chocolate. And so, here is a legend Easter almost exclusive to France. Legend has it that the bells of all the churches in Rome depart in the evening of Holy Thursday where they are blessed by the Pope. On Easter morning, the bells pealing back in to announce their joy after Jesus' resurrection. Before leaving Rome, they are loaded with Easter eggs they leave in their path in the gardens. Therefore, when they wake up, the children discover as many eggs in their gardens or apartments. Easter in French schools : To the extent that in France we have the separation between church and state, we do not particularly celebrate Easter. However some schools (kindergartens esssentiellement) organize an egg hunt in the playground or the school gardens. Students confectionnent classroom baskets to lay chocolate eggs they have found during the egg hunt. No religious reference will obordée by teachers. The egg hunt is then considered a actiivité within the French tradition, not religion (in the image of Christmas).
