In France, Christmas Eve, known as "Réveillon," is a time for families to gather and celebrate with a lavish dinner. The meal often includes traditional French dishes such as foie gras, oysters, and turkey, accompanied by fine wines and Champagne. The focus is on indulgent and delicious food, with the evening often stretching into the early hours of Christmas Day. After the meal, many families attend midnight Mass to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. The festive atmosphere continues into the day, with exchange of gifts and the enjoyment of festive treats such as bûche de Noël (Yule log cake) and marrons glacés (candied chestnuts).
