The Christmas season in France begins with St. Nicholas Day which is December 6th. Historically, gifts were always exchanged on this day, at least for children. Nowadays, some families have retained this tradition, while others have changed their gift-giving date to Christmas Eve, when Père NoÍl visits the homes of children. Other families celebrate both days with gifts.

For religious families, the Christmas season begins on the first Sunday of Advent, which is the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. These four Sunday masses are special ones at Catholic churches, much

like the Christmas Eve midnight mass is easily distinguished from a generic Sunday mass.

From the specialty lighting on the streets at night, to singing in churches, the Christmas season lasts throughout December and carries on until Epiphany-a full twelve days after Christmas. The Epiphany celebration, with its special cake with a treat hidden inside it for one lucky eater, signals the end of the Christmas season.
