Christmas at Pluvigner 2016!

And here we are Christmas 2016 the magical day is starting, we all home, the we are me my wife, my father and my 3 boys; we just wake up in France and after a nice breakfast, follow up with opening our wrapped gifts under the Christmas tree.

Some were surprises and others I could guest. My father gave me a bottle of Saint Emilion wine ok; and my sons plenty of clothing’s and a pair of shoes, my wife a funny sexy pajama lol!!! but a surprise.  Some of the photos to follow here.

This is the Christmas spirit we yearned so much and as in my previous post far away from family and close dear friends with only the pages of FB and Skype webcams left to share.  To be world globetrotter has its down points too …..

The town is quiet as all families are inside or visiting other family members, my street is deserted with the eerie feeling of a great event just happened the coming of our Lord.  With all the troubles in our World, it is good to keep the hope for a better one always a better one.

Of course, in Paris, there is always something bigger, and not to insist but Paris is not really France, it is a city state of its own. The big ice skating ring by the champs de Mars is on.  You have the huge illuminations by the avenue des Champs-Elysées, avenue Montaigne, Place Vendome, and in Montmartre and the by the Bercy Village amongst others.

We will be by there tomorrow and Tuesday visiting the markets of Champs-Elysées and St-Germain-des-Prés as well as visiting our beloved Versailles, our old home.

And the city has the ice skating rink by the Hôtel de Ville or mayor’s office as in many past years and our favorite with my gang: http://www.versailles-tourisme.com/votre-sejour/agenda#!/patinoire-ecologique-1006081

Enjoy the festivities of end of year 2016 and best wishes for 2017 to all my readers.
