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.

NoelI leave you with a photo of Santa Claus sailing on the river Moselle in Metz.

    Bonnes fêtes à toi aussi, Emma! Christmas cookies are traditional sweets here in Austria too, probably in all German-speaking countries… and the papillotes remind me of the candy and chocolates we we use to wrap in coloured tissue paper to put them on the Christmas tree. No quotes though. They are just decoration.

    I will chime in late, too. I hope everyone had a good holiday.

    There are many fine reasons to visit Lyon, endless reasons, but meeting Emma in person was a great highlight.
