If I was living in the North West of England the erecting of the Christmas tree may temp a few people to look its way but nothing more. Here in Daglan it is a special event which draws the villagers to it. People stop their cars in the middle of the road to give comments and advice to the men from the Mairie working on the tree and pedestrians stop to chat when they are going to the Boulangerie or the Supermarket. Which of course brings about beaming smiles for the men from the Mairie.
“Decorations now please”. Well done the tree is looking splendid.
A superb tree with its sparkling lights, tells the children that there are only so many sleeps to Christmas and that they must be extra good.
If you have any pictures of your town or village lights or Christmas tree could you send one to me please, I love Christmas.
Christmas would not be Christmas in Daglan without Santa being stuck in the tree.
Festive fun outside and inside the supermarket. Free biscuits, cake and mulled wine were being given out to all of the shoppers last Sunday morning.
Unfortunately, due to ill health I could not have any of the delights on offer but there is always next year.
A festive sight, Corrine and Thierry will welcome you at their Boulangerie.
The winter truffle market is open on Sundays at 11:00 prompt. Paul was there at the gate ready to buy but the smaller truffles had been sold by the time he battled through the queue. Better luck next Sunday. Truffles with Paul’s turkey and my vegetarian meal for Christmas day sounds good to me.
Almost into the fountain after strong winds pushed the tree over. Not to worry, the men from the Mairie were there early and it is back in place once more, of course with comments and advice from passers by.
I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year.
