Happy New Year from France!

Here's a French tradition to wish you all a Happy New Year: I know mistletoe is a Christmas tradition in the UK, but some gangly teenagers were dropped off outside our gate this morning and greeted me with charming perception of my foreign origins:


« Bonjour, Madame, nous sommes les Lycéens et on vend le gui, tradition française pour le nouvel an. »


How could I not buy it? It goes with my wintery necklace...
Bonnes fêtes de fin d'année !

I always wondered why with so much mistletoe about in France they tend not to use it as we do! Bonne et Heureuse Annee a toi!

Perhaps it's the START of a tradition...
