French Christmas traditions of Provence

Yesterday, in French III and V, students stepped into the heart of the French Christmas traditions of Provence! They planted the seeds of good fortune on Saint Barbara’s Day, with “le blé de la Sainte-Barbe” (wheat of Saint Barbara) as part of the Christmas culture. They will watch as their indoor wheat grows until Christmas Day, symbolizing prosperity for the coming year. Stay tuned for more photos into their festive journey!
