A few French Christmas traditions

Hello
Bonjour
Just a few French Christmas traditions I miss

Papillottes
Delicious traditional sweets with French festive flair!
The history of the Papillote:
Papillotes were invented in Lyon last century by a confectioner named Papillot, who made chocolates and sweets in his shop in Lyon
When he discovered that his young apprentice was sending stolen sweets wrapped in love letters to his sweetheart, Papillot was far from angry. He thought it an excellent idea, and so he began making his now-famous Papillotes de Lyon.
Made from candied fruit and chocolate, and wrapped in their traditional gold and coloured paper, these lovely Christmas sweets are guaranteed to add a little French festive flair to your Christmas table!
…..

Bûche de Noel, (Yule log), is one of the oldest French Christmas traditions. It dates back to Celtic times before Christmas in France was celebrated.
Today it is one of the French Christmas desserts served at the Réveillon, the French Christmas feast.
And don’t look at the English chocolate logs. They don’t taste nothing like the French one.
They are just an imitation, like the Chocolate éclairs…
You need to try the French ones❤️
