In French, students have been celebrating ‘La Fête des Rois’ (The Kings’ Festival). This takes place on January 6th, when French people remember the visit of the three kings to baby Jesus. A special cake (une galette), which contains a porcelain trinket (une fève), is eaten. The person who finds the trinket in his or her slice becomes king or queen for the day and wears a crown. In France, the cakes are eaten throughout the month of January.
