It’s become a tradition that I photograph the village’s Christmas tree each year, as it stands relatively proudly in our main square. Some readers have come to expect this, after being astounded five years ago by what may well have been “the world’s scrawniest Christmas tree.”
For a look back at how bad things were, check out “We’re dreaming of a wet Christmas,” posted Dec. 22, 2013, and — even more amusing — “The Leaning Tree of Daglan,” posted Jan. 2, 2014.
For this year’s photo, I had been waiting for a bright, sunny day so that I could take my picture. However, the weather has been grey and rainy, and we may not see le soleil until some time in July. So, here goes:
I’m pretty certain it won’t win any major Christmas tree awards, but it’s a pretty good effort for a small French village. And its twinkling white lights are a nice sight, if you’re passing through the square at night. Merry Christmas to all my readers!
