Why don't you ask your DIL if this is a French tradition?I've been a boring American WASP most of my life (still am), but my French daughter-in-law introduced a curve ball into our Christmas' with our grand daughter: All presents, that is ALL presents, come from Santa Claus. All presents, for everyone, are delivered by the jolly fat man.
I don't know if that is a French deal, or my lovely daughter-in-law's deal, but it doesn't really matter anyway.
Seems rather socialist. A jolly fat white guy dressed in red bestows the presents from some nameless place, perhaps the north pole. :tongue:
