Frenchify Your Friday – Number 44

French Easter traditions

Given that it is Good Friday tomorrow, I thought that a perfect way to Frenchify Your Friday this week might be to deepen your understanding of French Easter traditions.

Rather than simply regurgitating my research, I thought it would be better to point you in the direction of sites that have already done an excellent job of sharing all that is interesting, yummy and fun about Easter in France.

If you are keen to learn about what the French eat at Easter, the team at LoveToKnow have you covered. Of course the traditional lamb is mentioned, but you’ll also learn what else is served on Easter Sunday.

Did you know that traditionally, the Easter Bunny is not a standard fixture in most of France? Apart from in the Alsace, French children’s Easter eggs are delivered by church bells – which is something I found absolutely fascinating. To appreciate more about this lovely legend, head over to My French Life™ and check out the article Easter bells and bunnies.

Finally, if you want to understand how to greet someone in French at Easter, you can’t go past this article from frenchtoday.

All the best for a fabulous Friday. And, of course, Joyeuses Pâques.

Until next time – au revoir.
