Today’s Holiday:
Trois Glorieuses

The Three Glorious Days is a French wine festival that occurs on the last weekend of November in Côte d’Or Department, Burgundy, in eastern France. On the first day, the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin receive their new members, followed by a pig dinner during which hundreds of bottles of wine are uncorked. The second day of the festival takes place at Beaune, where a wine auction is held at the Hospice de Beaune. On the final day in Meursault, everyone who has taken part in the work of the wine harvest is invited to a huge banquet with folk dancing and merrymaking.:
