Having not much else to do and being somewhat interested anyway, I slip-slided my way down to the local church this evening to see a performance of a Christmas concert, played by a 30 piece local brass band. It was really very good. All the announcements were in French, of course, so I understood about one word in 20 but I did hear the announcement that they would be serving “vin chaude” – mulled wine – afterward. Of course I had to sample that! T’was a merry time – Merry Christmas to one and all!
