Every year, thousands of children song "Petit Papa Noël". This Christmas song, created in 1946 by Tino Rossi, is currently the best-selling single of all time in France, with over 5,711,000 units sold. The song has been covered by many artists over the years… so it could bee an excellent way to learn French and celebrate Christmas time! Just try this easy and pedagogic song before your next trip to Paris…

The well-“red” Parisian… In wintertime, I think the color red gives us Parisians a little lift. It’s warm, it looks good, and it’s flamboyant! We Parisians wear it with black, gray or white. Anything can look great in red (handbag, gloves, coat, that sexy little dress). But keep the look sober, if you want to achieve Parisian elegance.

Hey everybody, Santa Claus is comin’ to town and it’s time to deck the halls! We’re dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones we used to know (well, almost!). Marion and I are busy decorating for the holidays with our families. Marion’s apartment is in the Trocadero neighborhood and mine’s in the Marais. This year’s Xmas concept is “shabby chic”, a bold trendy look with soft, delicate, powdery colors that are just marvelous for a festive mood…

My mom' christmas trout mousse...

  • Time: Tuesday, 16 December 2014

In France, at Christmas we eat a lot of goose or duck “Foie gras”, a popular and well-known delicacy in our French cuisine. Foie gras is usually prepared into mousse, parfait or pâté. For those that do not eat goose or duck Foie gras, I propose an alternative, a diet and tasty mousse of trout, almost the same aspect for a delicate appetizer… My favorite Mom’ Christmas recipes…

You can sense the excitement mounting in Parisians as they eagerly await the big switch-on date. The city’s Christmas lights are guaranteed to enchant people of every age and fill them with wonder at all the fairytale colours adorning the streets of Paris. Arcades of light, multicoloured stars, incandescent flames, twinkling projections, gorgeous backdrops to the capital’s broad avenues. The title of “Ville Lumière” takes on a whole new depth of meaning.
