But around the Christmas holidays, Provence transfigures into a Christmas holiday sanctuary.

Similar to our own noche buena, one of the most popular holiday tradition in Provence is the Christmas Eve dinner which they call the “gros souper” or the “Great Supper” which takes place before the midnight mass. Unlike our typical Christmas Eve feast where there is an abundance of meat, with jamon being a staple on the dining table, Provence’s “Great Supper” is rather austere and meat-free. Seven kinds of dishes are served, mostly consisting of vegetables and fish. Each of these dishes are supposed to represent the seven sorrows of the Virgin Mary.
Another tradition that the people of Provence observe is the midnight mass which takes place on Christmas Eve. Immediately after the midnight mass, people would gather and feast on the thirteen desserts which symbolize Jesus Christ and His twelve apostles during the last supper.
Provence also has their own version of our belen or the Nativity scene consisting of santons, meaning “little saints.” Made of wood or clay, these santons are of great significance to the people of Provence. Year after year, they would add more of these to their collections and these are passed down through generations.
