A man for all seasons...

Following Colin & Elizabeth's post earlier in the month I thought I'd share this pic which is of a Santa who has been hanging around No3  Rue de Commerce in Abilly since last Christmas. We have noticed quite a few decorations still up from last season's celebrations during our travels around the area. Many are of the light variety as they are less noticeable when not in use.I suppose it is the French 'effective use of time' thing.

One of our favourite lunchtime venues 'Auberge du Vieux Port' in Maire keeps their Christmas and Easter decorations up all year making it the areas most seasonal restaurant.


  1. Jim, you do realise this is only going to encourage Colin! I will hold you personally responsible if one of these things mysteriously appears, hanging from our bedroom window!
