The main change though that we noted in France over Christmas was that turkey was not on the list but boxes and boxes of oysters were in every shop and market stall. We finally settled with oysters and duck breast.
The house and reindeer quilt was sent to us by Nigel's sister Hilary, it made a welcome addition to the decorations in the house. The other picture is our front door - we found that people in France decorated outside far more that we do in the U.K. or South Africa for that matter so that others could enjoy. In the towns and villages each lamp post and road sign had a small decorated tree attached to it.
