Christmas in France

Christmas Day is celebrated in France with all of the family coming together. On Christmas Eve, French children put their shoes in front of the fireplace. They hope Pere Noel (Santa Claus) will fill them with presents. His partner Le PERE Fouettard (Father Spanker) would "reward" bad children with a spanking. In northern France, children are given their gifts on December 6th, which is Saint Nicholas Day, instead of Christmas Day.Salzburg
