PS - « Galette des Rois »
Thu, 11 Jan 2018
Posted in Preschool

The «Galette des Rois » is the tradition that all Preschool children wait for every year!

Traditionally, the «Galette des Rois » is a way for French people to celebrate the Epiphany, the arrival of the Three Wise men (Magi). Every year, on January 6th, people gather « pour tirer les rois », to find the kings.

The tradition of « Tirer les rois », that is to say, to « Find the King », at the beginning of the New Year has survived the fall of the Roman Empire, the Middle Age and the French Revolution. Why so? Is it the great taste of the pastry? the change of roles for one day? the significance of this event? the satisfaction of finding the lucky charm, « la fève »? Everyone has their own interpretation, from the frangipane lovers to the youngest child at the table that has the right to decide for whom is the next slice, to the lucky charm collectors - everyone has his reason to love this tradition.

The Preschool children - KG1, KG2, KG3 - enjoyed this excitement today as they shared a Galette in every class where each child ate a slice.

The children who got a slice with the lucky charm became « the king » or « the Queen » for the day. Children just loved wearing the crown!
