She is not related to Pere Noel, but according to legend she also brings Christmas gifts to the good boys and girls of France! While Santa has been called a "jolly old elf", the ever-smiling "Aunt Airie" is thought to be a fairy. According to the story handed down from generation to gen- eration, she wears a long flowing cape and travels with a donkey that bears the many presents she brings in a bag he carries on his back. All ready for her holiday travels this year, we see a rosy- cheeked "Aunt Airie" making her appearance in a cape the color of the blue night sky. It's richly decorated with golden stars to complement the golden motif on her ruby-red dress. In her hand she carries a bag to match her fur-trimmed cape and from inside the bag a few small presents peek out. "Aunt Airie" and her donkey friend both wear expressions of joy and anticipation as they get ready to distribute the scores of presents in their roomy brown bag. Even the donkey is wearing his finest; a blanket that combines French fleur-de-lis patterns on deep green along with turquoise, orange, pink, and golden accents. Although "Aunt Airie" is expected on Christmas Eve only in certain regions of France, her charming legend has spread throughout the world!
