Merry Christmas to all of you. The four or five of you who read my Blog. Did you have a good fest? Did your family enjoy the times of family, food and gifts?
Our own was the first in the new house, the three of us, Lauren and Samantha joined us for a Skype chat in the morning. In spirit they were with us.
I have to say that Jarnac did make the season very festive. Besides some great Christmas lights, the pedestrian road was busy all weekend long, Christmas music was played over the town's PA system and people seemed unhurried, happy and relaxed. They all bought baskets full of oysters. And that Yule log cake. Shops seemed busy and I truly wish all of them had good sales.
Victoria made Duck a l'orange with roasted vegetables and potatoes. We drank some Pineau and red wine and for dessert there were plenty of cakes and cookies.
For Isabella we made it a mixed Christmas, she was able to open a gift on the 24th along with the European tradition and then on the 25th (too) early morning, she got her stocking and more gifts from Santa.
No gifts for us adults, having moved here is a gift worth of many Christmas holidays.
