Christmas at Vannes II, la Cervoiserie

Ok so needed to tell you the latest events on our Christmas preparation, this is big for our family every year. We have traveled long over the years thru different countries starting with my parents and then wife and boys; this is my fourth country and all citizens of them. Learned many languages sometimes I think too many, mix them up lol!!! But here we are again just before another Christmas Eve in 2016 in Pluvigner , Morbihan, Brittany, France.

It all started back in 1970 and it has never stop, Cuba, Spain, USA and France. Many regions and cities after we end up in the smallest with only 7000+  inhabitants. The time of the year becomes colder lonely, and sad sometimes away from family and close dear friends, with only my father with me and my sons and my wife.

The shows on TV are loving and make you think of times yesteryears, and love ones gone ,like my mother in 2007.

We get ready for another feast later on, the meal is cooking, the table is set up, and the drinks are in line. The social media, Skype is on,and the TV just about a press of a button to pass from one language to the other and see all the festivities afar. Just another regular Christmas. I saw the family and friends already in some reunions leading up to Christmas and nostalgia sets in, so many years of memories and yet so far.

But, believe me, Christmas is special for a lot more than the religious significance, but of times to feel stronger and united, as my grandfather used to said, the blood is thicker than water; bonds stay on no matter how far and how lonely life is beautiful and so is Brittany and France now.

I remember places on a world globe of special meaning to me each and every single one of them; Punta Brava, Madrid, Perth Amboy, Daytona Beach, Ormond by the Sea, North Miami, Hialeah, Miramar, Verneuil sur Seine, Versailles, Brech, and Pluvigner. Not to mention those nearby ,where I have worked such as Miami, Paris, Lagos, Curitiba, Geneva, Dreux, La Défense, Suresnes, and Vannes. I thanked them all for the good times and the good cheers.

Now, this afternoon, I cruise from visiting Rochefort-en-Terre, nice town in the Morbihan on the way home, stop for the apéro, aperitif, the drink before the meal so typical of France.

What better place than at the La Cervoiserie, a beer joint with samples from the world over. We had Belgian, German, Czech, French beers last night too and just today on way home. We are stock and ready, you are welcome to stop by ::)

So, therefore, Merry Christmas to all my readers, may the best comes your way in 2017, and believe in the magic it is magical. Cheers!!!
