“My most fond French Christmas memory was naturally when I was a child, as both my mother’s and father’s families were from the same town in the south of France.
In the morning I would hop from one house to another to open my boxes and we would have a huge family reunion and meal at one of my grandmother’s houses that would last at least three hours.
That day, all the children were allowed to play and not stay sitting with the adults all day long.”
