Our Tree — in all its glory!

In yesterday’s posting (December 4), I raised the subject of Christmas in the heart of Daglan. Here’s some of what I wrote:

Admiring our village Christmas tree has become a time-honoured tradition, at least here in the world of Radio Free Daglan. But this year, I have a special treat for you — a sneak peek at the tree as it was being installed in the village’s Place de la Liberté this very morning.

And then I posted a photograph of two of the village’s workers installing the tree, securing it into a hole in the pavement created for just that purpose. I went on to say:

So far, so good. It looks nice and tall, so we’ll just have to see how the branches shake out when the tree is securely fastened in place. (Don’t worry, of course I’ll show the decorated tree in a subsequent post.)

As you can imagine, when I drove out of our quartier this morning, I was delighted to see that the tree had already been fully decorated. And here it is:

Daglan’s 2019 tree.

Is it the best-looking Daglan tree ever? I’m not sure, but it does seem to be an attractive specimen. And on that note, Merry Christmas to you all!

    A very good tree but it needs more ornaments.
    Definitely improving though!
