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.
