“La Sainte Barbe”

(Patron Saint of firefighters, architects, geologists and miners, among others)

Provencal tradition:

Sow a few grains of wheat or lentils on December 4

Once germinated, they enter the decoration of the Christmas Eve table.

On December 25, they are decorated with a yellow or red ribbon and placed in the crèche, until Epiphany, when they can be planted in the ground.

Children always like to participate at such an occupation.
