what they eat
The French always eat bread with a meal, and the bread basket is an essential element on any table. If there is a cheese course and a desert, the cheese course always comes first.; at least three different cheeses will usually be served. Cheese is eaten with bread, not with biscuits.
The French observe 11 official public holidays. 5 of them are civil holidays ( New Year's Day, May Day, Victory in Europe Day, Bastille Day and WWI Armistice Day) and 6 have a religious origin based on the Catholic faith ( Easter Monday, Ascension Day, Whit Monday Assumption Day, All Saints' Day and Christmas.)
