If you are intrigued by French culture and curious about the history behind French traditions, this book is for you. In it, you’ll find a selection of short stories, written in a lively style, which often reveal little-known, but always fascinating facts about French customs. If you have ever wondered how French Easter eggs are delivered, or why the French walk around with paper fish taped to their backs on the 1st of April, you can find the answers to these questions plus much more in this book.
French Holidays & Traditions contains twelve chapters – one for each month of the year, and each chapter contains one or two short stories. These stories might relate to a holiday observed during that month, or they could relate to a tradition, which may not be associated with any particular date. Then, at the end of each chapter, you will find a list of holidays and observances for that month. It is a handy reference for a monthly dose of French culture.
The author, Margo Lestz, who blogs about France as The Curious Rambler (curiousrambler.com) has had a second home in Nice, France since 2007. This, along with her studies in French language allows her to observe the French culture up close and personal.
