Start a new tradition
The excitement of the holidays is all about tradition and rituals. If you want to jazz things up a bit without spending a ton of money, try a new tradition.
My young friend and I (I tutor her “en francais” once a week) decided to make sugar cookies. Cooking is a great way to practice a language. Last week we made the “buiscuits” and this week we put on “les decors”. Our cookies are in the shape of a “sapin de noel”.
I think it’s the beginning of a lovely tradition and what it cost me in ingredients doesn’t compare to what it gained me in yummy fun.
