"Christmas? Santa Claus, Rudolph and snowflakes… yes, I’m a big kid and Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Having spent my childhood in England, the word Christmas conjures up images of mince pies, carol singers, crackers and turkey. Christmas is a time for celebrating traditions, so important and sadly on the decline. I have lived in the South of France for over twenty years now so French, Provençal traditions very much prevail. Great care is taken in preparing Le Réveillon, in particular. It’s a family affair, we buy oysters, shellfish, local goat’s cheese, bread and fresh fruit and vegetables from the market and enjoy looking for the traditional Treize Desserts (13 desserts).  Christmas? The joy of giving… how I love finding the perfect present, wrapping paper, card and accompanying words. Nothing compares with the smiles of your loved ones on Christmas morning! Christmas is a time for sharing, for thinking of others, for being thankful. It’s a time to reunite, to bring the family together. We try to spend part of our holidays with my side of the family every year, which means trips to England or a house full of English cousins, depending on our arrangements. We have no plans as yet for this December, but I am already looking forward to leaving a glass of milk and a carrot by our fireplace, and, yes, I do so love my Christmas Pud!"
