The use of "aussi bien que" puzzles me. Wouldn't "ainsi que" be the correct usage in this context such as:
L'Angleterre, ainsi que la France, a combattu l'Allemagne en 1914.England, as well as France, fought Germany in 1914. In contrast, "aussi bien que", means a comparison of abilities such as:L'Angleterre a combattu l'Allemagne aussi bien que la France en 1914.England fought Germany as well as (as efficiently as) France in 1914.
Reading B1, Politics, History & Economics, Celebrations & Important Dates, Family & Relationships, Listening or Seeing B1
I think you are right. There doesn't seem to be any 'comparison' going on here; rather it is a list of countries that 'additionally/also' follow/do the same scheduling of la fête des Méres.
