Funny regional rivalries in France

Géraldine Lepère, Jun 19

Name wars, where does the North start?  Should you ask for pain au chocolat or chocolatine?

Today in Comme une Française, Géraldine talks about a very loaded topic. Things that can get you into trouble if you bring them up with the wrong people, or get you into endless hours of debate, French-style, with friends shouting at each other and wine glasses flying.

She shows us a few absurd regional rivalries in France, the questions or very delicate topics no one agrees on, and that are an endless source of jokes.
