Julie is walking down the street, she stops and looks at a shop, she seems to like what she sees. In the window, there is some jewellery. A woman comes out of the shop and Julie enters right after. In the shop there is only one saleswoman. Julie goes to her and she tells her that she does not want to buy anything and that she is a saleswoman. She shows the young saleswoman the accessories created by her young friends. The saleswoman doesn't look enthusiastic, but this doesn't discourage Julie. She keeps smiling and does everything she can to get the salesgirl to agree to show her boss a few accessories. Finally, Julie leaves a couple of things with her and asks her for directions to another shop. The saleswoman kindly explains the way and Julie leaves.

At the market, at the cheese shop, I bought half a pound of butter, a farm camembert, a litre of milk and a pot of fresh cream. At the greengrocer's I bought two melons, a kilo of tomatoes, a pound of green beans and a tub of strawberries. At the butcher's I bought three slices of ham, some pâté and a nice entrecote. I also went to the supermarket to buy a packet of yeast, a packet of flour and a bottle of fruit juice.

Living in the countryside has many advantages. There is almost no pollution. There are not many cars so there are no traffic jams. Life is healthier, the air is clean and life is cheaper than in the city.
There are also many advantages to living in the city: there are jobs, theatres, cinemas, a rich cultural life. In the city there are shops, you can easily meet other people and the best schools for your children are in the city.

This year again, more than three thousand museums have decided to stay open at night for "Museum Night", a celebration created by the Ministry of Culture in 2005. This event includes art museums, archaeological museums, history museums, castles, etc. Programmes specially designed for the evening have been devised. This year, in Mulhouse, the Musée des Beaux-Arts is organising a treasure hunt, and in Dax the Musée de Borda is organising a treasure hunt. For those who are not afraid of anything, the archaeological museum of Nice proposes to visit its collection of sarcophagi in the dark with only a torch for illumination. One last original initiative: the Departmental Museum of Flanders in Cassel offers the possibility of visiting in sign language.

To celebrate Christmas, we decorate the tree and the house with garlands, stars and baubles bought at the Christmas market. Sometimes an advent calendar is hung on the living room wall.

On Christmas Eve, children think of Father Christmas, his sleigh, reindeer, elves... In the evening, Christian families go to church to attend midnight mass.

For the New Year's Eve meal, the family is reunited and the meal is delicious. Often, poultry is prepared: a turkey or a chicken. The grown-ups tell their memories of Christmas to the little ones who listen, thinking of their many presents.
