65% of french citizens are roman catholic, 25% atheist, 8% moslem, 1% buddhist and 0.8% jewish. language french Romance language spoken as a first language by about 136 million people worldwide.[1][10] Around 190 million people speak French as a second language,[11] and an additional 200 million speak it as an acquired foreign language family "What is the difference between family life in France and family life elsewhere, I sometimes get asked. Well in truth, much less than you would think.
Eating habits and mealtimes are more formal in France, and it is much more common for families to eat together. But, it is also common for a television to be on in the corner, so the notion of quality time and family bonding is not quite as convincing as you might think.
Food is generally seen as more important, and alcohol as less important, than it in the UK. To explain a bit – there is more focus on the quality of food and drink in France, and less on the quantity.
Two proper sit-down meals a day is a bare minimum – grabbing a quick sandwich is an alien concept, certainly outside the big cities. But that doesn’t leave the French with a terrible obesity problem – quite the opposite. Perhaps two good, balanced, meals and a glass of Bordeaux is less fattening than two burgers, a bag of crisps, a mars bar and three pints of lager. I can’t be sure because I’m not an expert in foody things but it seems possible." 500 years ago now t

Early in the French Revolution, the Paris militia, which played a prominent role in the storming of the Bastille, wore a cockade of blue and red, the city's traditional colors. According to Lafayette, white, the "ancient French colour", was added to militia cockade to create a tricolor, or national, cockade.[1] This cockade became part of the uniform of the National Guard, which succeeded the militia and was commanded by Lafayette. The colors and design of the cockade are the basis of the Tricolor flag, adopted in 1790. A modified design by Jacques-Louis David was adopted in 1794. A solid white flag was used during the Bourbon restoration in 1815-1830, but the tricolor has been used since. KIDS LIFE this is by a kid named alex Bonjour (hello)! My name is Camille Boncour.
