Just yesterday I realized that I’d left you hanging, with my December 9 posting called “A Christmas work-in-progress.” Since then, our village’s new holiday decoration has been completed, but I had neglected to show off the finished work.
To remind you what this is about, here’s a photo from that December 9 posting, showing Santa’s sleigh up in a large tree near Daglan’s main square, in front of the restaurant Le Petit Paris:
On December 9, I wrote that I bumped into our village’s mayor, Pascal Dussol, as I was taking my photos, and it was he who explained that the decoration wasn’t completely done. Here’s what I wrote:
I congratulated him on this “bonne idée” and said it looked lovely. M. Dussol thanked me, but quickly added that the decoration wasn’t complete — a biche (deer) was to be added in front of the sleigh, plus a set of Christmas lights. So I’ll have to return to let you see this new (for Daglan) bit of Christmas whimsy. Stay tuned.
Last night was chilly and clear, so I thought I should try my hand at photography in the dark. And here’s the result:
My photograph doesn’t really do justice to the decoration, but I think you can tell that it’s pretty cute. And for the record, here’s Daglan’s main public Christmas tree, as it looked last night:
Maybe it’s not ready for an appearance in London, Paris or New York, but I think it’s a nice addition to Daglan for the holidays.
