Here’s my reply:

Hello Tara,

I do have some contents on the website related to Christmas. The podcast episodes 36 and 37 (it’s in English so people can listen to it without any language barriers) explained some of the unique French holiday traditions.

I think it covers almost all the aspects you mentioned except perhaps the Christmas stories. I honestly don’t have enough time this year to share some Christmas stories, but next year I will try to do that. Please check below some cool articles related to Christmas.
