Géographie

Belgium is located in Western Europe between France and Belgium. It has an area of about 11,787 square miles, which is about the size of Maryland. The climate is temperate with mild winters, cool summers and rainy, humid, cloudy. The terrain is flat coastal plains in northwest, central rolling hills, rugged mountains in southeast. The capital is Brussels.

Belgium is a country with a diverse culture. Every year in the city of Binche, the Carnival of Binge is held every year. People dress up in costumes and wax masks and throw oranges to the spectators as a sign of good luck. There is also an early Belgian Christmas, la Saint-Nicolas, on December 5. Saint Nicholas comes at night, goes down the chimney, leaves the gifts, and continues his course.
