I’m not sure if it’s true, but I have the impression that the French have been groomed to think about love from a very early age. After all, French is the language of love, and romance and France are often mentioned in the same breath.

And now la poste is getting in on the act. And why not? They are, after all, French postmen (and women).la poste love advice

Yep. Yesterday la poste was offering love advice at the Fête des Vendanges in Montmartre. As it was not only a celebration of wine and wine making, but also a celebration of l’amour, it seemed only natural (in a French way) for the uncharacteristically jolly postpeople to be counselling the crowd about love.

The advice for lovers is the kick-off for “Écrivez l’Amour”, a contest sponsored by la poste, to see who can write the most beautiful love letter (in 25 lines or less, handwritten, please).

Stay tuned for the winning letters announced in December.
