Holiday guest post! // Noël à Dijon!

One of my BFFs, Dianne, is now living in Dijon, France with her husband!  (They’ve been living in Spain, where her husband is from, for the past four years.)  She has a blog documenting their new French life: Au soleil, su la pluie.  Dan and I are trying to plan a trip to visit them this spring!  I’ve asked her to send me a piece of Christmas Noël in her little town, and that’s exactly what she’s done!  Thank you so much, Dianne!  Miss you! xo

The Christmas season has been so very jolie in Dijon, here’s to enjoying the season a la vie en rose!

Garlands of lights canopy the streets and twinkle at night and boughs of holly and mistletoe are decking out the city and mini Charlie Brown trees brighten the sidewalks with their green and
red bulbs.

On the weekends regal plazas have become children’s ski parks and the scent of vin chaud and roasting chestnuts fills the air and make the perfect snack for keeping warm and shopping.

(That’s Dianne – the one with the Santa hat, not the dude with the oysters!)

The market is busy with people lining up to get cheese, foie gras, turkey, escargot, and oysters for their Christmas Réveillon feasts. And everyday local bakeries are taking orders for the annual buttercream wonders bûche de Noël.

Want to add some France to your celebration? Enjoy a bûche de Noël (try the bake-along recipe!), string some pain d’épice (gingerbread) cookies onto the tree, spice up some warm mulled wine and if you’re brave enough some garlicky escargot-and most of all enjoy the time with family and friends!

Joyeaux noel a tous!
