    Traditions such as when a child loses a tooth for example.  In France children receive a toy from La Petite Souris (the little mouse), instead of a coin from the Tooth Fairy.

    At Christmas time, children in our fun french lessons are amazed to find out that if they lived in France, polishing their shoes would be an essential part of the preparations for “Noël”!

    In France, Santa Claus does not come to fill stockings. Instead, children place their shoes in front of the fireplace for Père Noël to fill them with gifts. Père Noël will also hang sweets and toys on the Christmas tree.
