A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to the wedding (un mariage, note only one R) of my dear cousin Coralie and her fiancé Thibaud. As I was describing the ceremony etc... to my Skype students, I was surprised to see how fun it was for them, and all the questions they asked about a typical French wedding. So I decided to share the experience with you - and re-live this magical day the time of a blog post :-)
Le 14 juillet est la Fête Nationale en France : c'est une journée de célébration de la culture française. De nombreux événements publics ont lieu: des défilés militaires, des repas de commune, des danses, des fêtes et de nombreux et grandioses feux d'artifice. Mais que font vraiment les Français ce jour-là ?
"Pâques" is an important holiday in France: a religious one of course, but also a traditional gathering for families, religious or not. Kids go egg hunting (you can see our daughter Leyla in action), but our egg providers are a bit different: magic bells!! And we traditionally cook a large meal with a leg of lamb, and set a lively table to honor the coming of Spring time.
