Joyeux Noël

December 25, 2014 16 comments


Bonjour tout le monde!

I wish you all a Joyeux Noël. I hope this is a peaceful and joyful day for you all. I hope you’re spending this special day with your beloved ones. This year I’m sending a special Joyeux Noël to the book bloggers I’ve had the chance to meet in real life. It was always a very pleasant moment and always surprising to see how easy we could connect thanks to our shared book blogging.

Our family comes from two different regions of France and we celebrate Christmas according to the two traditions. So we’ll have papillottes like real Lyonnais and Christmas cookies like in Moselle. Papillottes are chocolates wrapped in a paper with a funny or literary quote on it and then in a shiny paper. And Christmas cookies are only cookies with christmassy shapes. Here is a picture of the two.
