Translation Notes

1. When referring to aspects of the holiday that apply only to France, I kept the term in French.

2. Some of the tenses don't match. In French, we use the present tense to describe historical stories like this to evoke a sense of immediacy, whereas in English, we commonly use the past tense - learn more about historical French tenses.
