My late mother was born in France & came to the US as a young child to reside. Every Christmas her grandmother would send to us children a chocolate shoe filled with assorted candies and a white chocolate Infant Jesus. Could you advise me as to where I might find this confection of French tradition in the states. I'd like to keep the tradition alive for my own children.

Thank you!

Can't believe that last year you've only got one comment for this sweet post! I didn't know about your blog at the time!

During my au pair year en Provence my french family and I spent Christmas at the Nana's house in Belgium and from there I went home to Germany for a few days and then back to Brussels, for that reason I didn't know much about the Christmas traditions en Provence. I knew about the creche and the santons and the buche de noel, but that's about it. So I find your post very interesting! Thanks for that my friend!x
