How to eat la galette des rois in France

Bonjour,

Bonne année !

In France, today, on January the 6th, we eat la Galette des Rois: the king cake. You’ll see galettes in all boulangeries in France. And children with their crown on the head after school. It’s not only about eating a galette, it’s about traditions.

You’ll find a surprise below the video.
