Bonjour and welcome to the 23rd All About France monthly link up all about France! You’re in the right place if you’re looking to link up a blog post, get some holiday inspiration or just have a read about your favourite country, France!

How it’s already December is beyond me….I am not mentally prepared for Christmas and actually not even feeling like I want to be!  Usually by the time December starts I’m ready to espouse the festive spirit, but despite having been to a couple of marchés de noël I seem to have lost my Christmas mojo. I’m hoping you’ll inspire me with some fun seasonal posts and equally I hope you enjoy my old one on French customs at Christmas.

I debated linking up 24 reasons to love Christmas in France, a post I put together last year with the participation of many regulars from #AllAboutFrance as it was published after last year’s December link-up and many of you won’t have seen it.  But then many of you have as you helped write it so I thought I wouldn’t, but as this is my linky and the article is so wonderfully positive I’m just going to slip it in here anyway for anyone who’s interested!  If you’re an expat in France missing Christmas at home do take a look at it as it’ll help remind you of all the lovely things about noël en France.

Reasons to love Christmas in France

While in this uncharacteristic funk (I’ll call it post holiday, post Vietnam blues) I’m afraid I didn’t get around to working out the top commenter this month.  Please inspire me with loads and loads of lovely comments and shares this month, be generous in the spirit of the season! Thanks to everyone who linked up last time, here are some of my favourites (it’s always so hard to choose!)  If you haven’t already read them I hope you’ll pop over and have a squizz.

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.
