French children put their shoes in front of the fireplace, in hopes that Pere Noel will fill them with gifts. Enjoy le reveillon, a symbolic awakening to the meaning of Christ's birth, and is the culinary high point of the season. Bearwiskers likes the traditional desserts - la buche de Noel, le pain calendeau, la galette des rois. Yum Yum! Don't forget the telling of the Marveiles qui advinrent en la Saint Nuit.
