Pair of Children - Couple d'Enfants - Dous Pitchoun
The Pair of Children, walking hand-in-hand, are amongst the children who are a traditional part of the crib.
"The children, who are supposed to be fast asleep, have overheard everything and here they come running to be (among) the first to see the newborn babe. In their hurry, they, too, have not forgotten to take gifts. 'What will I have in my bag?' asks one in a Christmas scene, 'Some honey, my toys, two pigeons and a little "fouace" (Aniseed cake).' - D. J. Foley, The Little Saints of Christmas
Of course, he carries lavender honey from Provence and she brings a "poumpo" ('la pompe") - the round, Provençal cake made with olive oil, flour, sugar, flavored with the oil of orange-blossoms, and pierced with holes.
In their Sunday-best, she wears a sweet blue pinafore over her red dress, and a matching headscarf; and he is neatly dressed in striped trousers, a white shirt fastened with a braid, and a cloth jacket.
