Gotta Be Da Shoes...


Okay, so normally in France, it's the children's slippers that are set out under the tree... But the kids in this house didn't know the Le Père Noël was coming a day early... And Santa's helpers were getting awfully tired.

Children here place their slippers under the tree and Père Noël groups that child's gifts near them. This makes for a long task when gifts are all mixed together in the bags, and some still without tags....

French people don't often use stockings, and we didn't have the ones that went home with the cousins last Christmas.... So the stockings were hung on some chairs with care -- don't note that Saint Nicolas didn't stuff them this year! Hence the candy on the floor. That got divvied up equally on "Christmas morning" under the watchful eyes of two nine-year-olds....
