The “Fête de la Saint Jean” is celebrated every June 24th throughout France. I’m always fascinated by how customs and holidays that we take for granted have very interesting origins that we have forgotten with time.
I love the music festival !!! Since 1982, on the evening of the Summer Solstice (longest day of the year), I savor the free concerts generously offered by local musicians while bouncing around from street to street.
Monaco Grand Prix – May 2015 Glamour, Prestige, Danger… What’s not to love ??? A truly spectacular environment, surrounded by the rich and famous, with really fast cars, plus all the excitement and competition of a race…
Fête des Lumières Lyon 2014 – Update Just back from the Festival of Lights Lyon 2014 – what a fantastic event ! I really enjoyed all the diverse displays this year. They never disappoint, and I never get tired of seeing them !
A festival spawned from an age-old custom… The Festival of Lights extends the traditional festival of December 8th when the residents of Lyon celebrate the Virgin Mary, whose statue stands on Fourvière hill overlooking the city.
