In France, Christmas is a wonderful celebration and Christmas holidays are very expected by children and every people. The first of December, we start a "Calendrier de l'Avent" and we continue it until the 24th of December. During this month, families decorate a Christmas tree and the house. Children make a list of presents that they wish have and the letter is sent to Santa Claus (who is called "Père Noël" en France). There are markets of Christmas ("marché de Noël") in every town and many lights outside.
Christmas Eve (24th of December), in France, is called "Le Réveillon de Noël". This is a family dinner. For the starter of the dinner, we eat salmon, "foie gras", "huîtres" and snail. After, we eat a turkey and for the dessert, we eat the traditional "bûche de Noël". Adults drink champagne and children drink orange juice or others fruit juices. At the end of the dinner, we put our slippers under the Christmas tree.

In the 25th of December, in the morning, everybody discover their presents !

How do you spend Christmas, in America ?

Merry Christmas !

Before Christmas children start a “calendrier de l’Avent” for wait Santa Claus. The houses are decorated with many lights inside as the outside. We eat for example: roast turkey, salmons, “foie gras”, grilled chestnuts, seafoods, snails, “galantine”, and traditional buche … During this evening we wait, Santa Claus. Many family, put socks or slippers below the fir tree. During, the night Santa Claus come for put gifts below the fir tree, and in the morning the family discover the gifts.

Christmas is a moment eagerly awaited in France by children and adults. It's a moment magic where we meet with all family.

The house are decorate outside with garland of light as well as villages where the night each children are fill with wonder by colors, the light. Inside, every house has got a christmas tree.

Children write a letter to Santa Claus to say what they would like to have in Christmas then send it by post.

Children start a "calendrier de l’Avent" for wait Santa Claus who start the first of December and finished the 24th December.

We begin has to celebrate Christmas on the 24th of december. Before to go to the bed, every child put his shoe under the christmas tree. On the table, we put a glass of milk and biscuit for Santa Claus. In the morning, children and parents see a lot of present under their shoes always accompany chocolates and clementines.

We eat full of things but there is the famous "fois gras", "saumon fumé" and above all the "bûche de noël".

Merry Christmas everybody and happy holidays !

Hello i'm going to talk you about the way we celebrate christmas in France.
First we sent a letter to the "père noël"(Santa claus), we decorate our house and our christmas tree with lights and christmas bowls.
The christmas eve is the 24 of december, at this day we use to eat a copious traditional diner, composed of " foie gras ", "huitres" and " buche glacée".
In France we deposed slipers on the firebox because the " père noël" arrived by the firebox for bringing gifts.
Parents decide if their childrens opened their gifts at 0:00am or if the childrens sleep and wait for tomorrow to discover the presents.
Then childrens play with their toys during the last days of holiday.
And you how do you celebrate christmas in America ?

Best wishes and Merry christmas.
Bye :)

In France, Christmas celebrates on 25th December, generally with the family. Christmas is celebrated in all the families. There is no typical meal for the day of Christmas we eat of turkey, salmon, grapes, strawberries... However the desert is the same for everybody: the bûche. In all the houses there is always a Christmas tree, it is decorated with garlands, they can be electric and bowls, cards…The decorations can be several colors (red, white, blue, gilt, silver) We put slippers in front of the Christmas tree and  the house is too decorated. During the night between the 24th December (“Le Réveillon de l’an”) and the 25th December (The day of Christmas), the children go to their beds, so during the night the Santa Claus distributes their presents !

In certain families, somebody plays the role of the Santa Claus, or then there isn’t Santa Claus, like in my family, so the magic of Christmas remains intact.

And you, how do you celebrate Christmas in America ?

Merry Christmas !
