Throughout Provence, Christmas traditions are a mix of ancient religious rituals and charming secular local customs. This festive season known as Les fêtes calendales stretches between early December and the beginning of February. Towns and villages throughout Provence celebrate with des marchés de Noël, des foires aux santons, des festivals de lumières, des crèches, all leading up to le cacho-fiò, le gros souper, les pastorales, les treize desserts, and of course midnight masses with their traditional cantiques, sung in Provençal, and their unique pastrages. Provence’s cuisine alone is stupendous around Christmas…

Through readings, video clips, and storytelling, we will learn about these traditions and sample a few treats.
