    SANTONS AIX-EN-PROVENCE

    Whenever you visit AIX during November-December you will see numerous stands in the streets that sell SANTONS.

    They work all year to sculp and create the most wonderful figurines for your Christmas Crib.....

    It is almost impossible to describe the atmosphere, the beauty and the SPECIALNESS of this all.

    The larger ones with real clothes (in Provence style) are exceptionally marvellous and....expensive, dozens of euros each piece.

    It is a nice habit to buy 1-2 pieces each year and so collect a nice group that will be in the livingrooms for the weeks around Christmas.

    This market event occurs during the whole month of December. It is a traditional, provencal market that sells painted earthenware figures that people put in their home to celebrate the bith of Jesus.
