Gifts from the Millers/Bakers - Presents des meuniers
Gifts from the Miller to honor the Christ Child: several sacks of flour and a loaf of bread.
The Miller always wears his white cotton cap (a symbol of his trade). Known for his laziness and by the name Langesse, he provides the flour for the daily bread and, thus, is truly important to all in the village. He is said by some to have been among the first to hear the angels call. He hurries to the stable with a large sack of flour on his back to give to Mary.
