Product description

Product Description

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.

Would you like to know:
• Why people have fish on their backs on April 1st?
• How the Bastille was taken down?
• Who collects teeth from under children's pillows?
• Which sport honours the memory of a girl called Fanny?

You will discover the fascinating stories behind these and other French traditions.

French Holidays & Traditions is made up of twelve chapters – one for each month of the year, and each chapter contains one or two 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.

A handy reference for a monthly dose of French culture.

About the Author

Margo Lestz is American by birth but now divides her time between London, England and Nice, France (with a little bit of Florence, Italy thrown in for good measure). Life in a foreign country is never dull and every day is a new learning experience. She describes herself as a perpetual student and is always taking some kind of course or researching a moment in history that has caught her fancy. She's curious by nature and always wondering who, what, why, when, where, and how. Margo shares her adventures (and her questions) with Jeff, her husband of many years. Author site: Blog:
