A Boxing Day blogging break

Quite sensibly, Canada has followed the British tradition of treating the day after Christmas as another true holiday, called Boxing Day. As Canadians, my wife Jan and I believe we should celebrate Boxing Day by (1) recovering from our Christmas feasting and (2) doing not much else.

(By contrast, most French people were back at work today. Their name for today is the rather unimaginative Lendemain de Noël — literally, the Day After Christmas — and it’s considered a “regional holiday.”)

As for us, today I will take a break from serious blogging, and save the description of our amazing Christmas lunch until tomorrow. I’ll just leave you with a look at the fireplace in the wonderfully restored stone-walled home near Daglan where we gathered with friends for our Christmas lunch.

A cheery fire was next to our dining table.

Here at Radio Free Daglan, we’re hoping that all our readers had a great Christmas, and are looking forward to a truly Happy New Year. Ta ta for now.

    I am eagerly looking forward to hearing about your 7 1/2 hour marathon Christmas feast and I hope you post some fotos because I want to see exactly how comfy are your dining chairs 🙂

    Hi Gaynor, Stand by — my report is coming soon. As for our dining chairs, the chairs in the photo are NOT are dining chairs. But they were very comfy. So are ours. If you need more comfy info about chairs, please email. Happy New Year! — Loren
