Use French festivals and traditions to bring your French Christmas topic alive! This pack contains background information on how Christmas is celebrated in France, from La fête de Saint-Nicolas on 6th December through to La Saint-Sylvestre (New Year's Eve) on 31st December. Teaching activities range from writing letters to Père Noël and drawing and labelling a traditional French Christmas dinner to comparing how Christmas is celebrated in Britain and France. The words to two popular French Christmas carols are given: Douce Nuit (Silent Night) and Vive le Vent (Jingle Bells). All the pages are reproducible and can be displayed on an interactive white board.
