Welcome to the Christmas 2017 edition of All About France, the linky all about France!  If you’re looking to link up a blog post, get some holiday inspiration, possibly find some festive cheer or just have a good old read about your favourite country, France, you’re in the right place!

Oh la la it’s almost Christmas!  We’re getting very excited at Lou Messugo as firstly, the Teen will be home from uni soon and secondly, we’re off to New York for Christmas!  I hate the overuse of the term “bucket list” but this genuinely is a bucket list trip in the true sense of the word…I have always wanted to go to New York at Christmastime and even more so since having children, so I’m actually fullfilling a dream.  Because of this trip, and the desire to spend quality time with my family now that we’re living in different countries I have decided to skip the January link-up and return in February when we’ll be well and truly back into routine.  [The shortbread Christmas tree above and below was made by the Teen last year; I’m hoping a term of university life hasn’t put him off cooking and that he’ll be making another one again soon.]

What is All About France?

All About France is a monthly blog linky, linking up blog posts about France.  These posts can be freshly scribbled or from your archives as a way of bringing new life to an old article.  There is no date limit and the only rule for subject matter is that it is about France in some way.  This can mean French language, French food, French style, French literature, expat life in France, French expats abroad or travel in France among other things.  The linky opens on the 1st Thursday of each month and stays open for a week.

Here’s how to join in the fun

  • You can link up one post, old or new as long as it’s about France/French.
  • Please make sure you include the All About France badge at the bottom of your post or in the sidebar of your blog, or a hyperlink back to me (the html code is below).
  • Please comment on the host’s posts and at least two others, the more the merrier.
  • Blog linkys only work if you’re generous with your comments and shares.
  • Please use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media.
  • Don’t forget you can join the Pinterest board and pin your post to it for extra exposure.

This linky will stay open for a whole week and the next one will be on Thursday 1st February NOT January as I’m taking a month off.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year tout le monde!  I hope you have fabulous fêtes de fin d’année!
