The Euro was introduced at midnight, 1 January 2002. Without getting into whether this was a good thing or a bad thing, the fact remains that 11 countries adopted the Euro (€) on that day. Naturally, there was a period during which people were able to continue using the old currency and a longer period during which they were able to take their currency to banks for conversion.

But, it’s been seven years. The Euro is here. It’s here to stay. It’s become one of the world’s currencies, alongside the Dollar, the Pound, the Yen, and so on. Many countries have even switched their reserves to the Euro instead of the Dollar.

So, why-o-why do the receipts in France <b>continue</b> to show the cost in Euro and the old French franc?

Come on, people, get over it! Let it go!
