How do we celebrate
How do we celebrate?

We eat la brioche des rois or La galette des rois. Inside each “cake”, there is a plastic or porcelain mini figure hidden (la fève). Whoever gets it becomes “le roi” or “la reine” for the day and chooses his king or queen.

Whoever become king or queen is sometimes expected to bring in another brioche or galette des rois… This can go on the whole month of January!!
