This Christmas, I wanted to learn more about a 100 year old tradition within my family. I grew up seeing the women in my family bake this bread together every year. While I knew that it began in France, I never knew exactly how or why it started. I learned so much about my great-grandmother in the process of interviewing various family members!
I hope that this short documentary will be viewed for years to come by members of my family, so they can remember the story behind this great and delicious tradition!
If anyone has any historical information on the tradition of "Jesus bread" and getting loaves of bread blessed by priests, please let me know!
