Putumayo French Christmas CD - Putumayo’s French Christmas provides charming and joyful music from France and French Canada to accompany your holiday season. In France, Christmas is typically a restrained and intimate holiday. In francophone Canada, Christmas is an opportunity to lighten the mood and bring communities together for a big celebration before the cold North winds and deep snow make travel more difficult. Yet, despite the variations, both France and French Canada celebrate the holiday season with music that is overflowing with charm, beautiful melodies and heartfelt appreciation of all the joys that Christmas has to offer.
French Christmas features a recipe for French Kir Royale, a classic French apéritif often served during the winter holidays. It consists of an elegant blend of Champagne and crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur).
