Les Poissonchats’ Wondrous Advent Calendar – Café & Croissants

Tadaa, happy 1st of December and so here is, this year’s Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar! Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar? This is a thing I started running on instagram a couple of years ago and it has since become a real tradition, I suppose. Lots of fun preparing it, this season it’s all around French Christmas, and all the very important Ingredients to a successful French Christmas in particular.

This is Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar! Advent calendars are a huge tradition where I come from: you make little gifts for your loved ones every day until Christmas Day, fourandtwenty little surprises. The advent calendars come in beautifully old fashioned prints on cardboard, with extra glitter, and each day there’s a paper door waiting for you to pry open. Others are more elaborate, pretty baskets filled with twenty four numbered parcels, decorated with red velvet ribbons. The one I’m making for you this season is altogether a different one, and, quite obviously, it’s about beloved France, Christmas in France, and after all, what it takes to celebrate a proper French Christmas.

Here’s the first ingredient: Café & Croissants. You may sketch out Christmas plans or you may not and just watch the world outside the window instead, never mind, the important bit is to sit down and enjoy every single bit of it all.
