Joyeux Noël!!

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!
We lov these stunning slip covers from Laduree!
Even though the French are not big on Christmas trees you will quicker find a nativity scene or creche ( French for manger ) displayed and it serves as a reminder of the Christmas celebration. The lights on display are a breathtaking reminder of this festive period. How about these fabulous lights that adorn the Eiffel Tour? It is a time for family reunions, generosity, a big feast called Le Réveillon - that is a highlight of this time, followed by-la Messe de Minuit on Christmas Eve - Midnight Mass, and gifts for the little ones.

In France candy, fruit, nuts and small toys will be hung on the tree overnight, anything from Laduree will make us smile! Merci!
French little ones put their shoes in front of the fireplace the night before Christmas, hoping that Papa Noel will fill them with gifts. Nothing stopping a girl from doing the same! We hope yours get filled with everything you dreamed of!
