Christmas is coming….

We’ve been a bit slow on the decorating front, largely because the decorations are in the attic and the ladder is at the gite. But we called in at Taizé today to see what’s happening there. It’s a Mexican Indian theme this year with colourful dreamcatchers made out of sticks bound with raffia.

However Brother Stephen’s  Mary & Joseph look rather mournful; a donkey and a cow look like coming to blows over the empty crib. The sheep have yet to arrive and the shepherds are not painted in.

Last year’s effort was much livelier with wonky camels and a cage of hens. But perhaps we should wait a bit longer…. The donkey was being very patient.

Coming home we were surprised to see new additions to our village decorations.  I hope Santa isn’t missing a reindeer. We also have a fox and a wild boar. Well done Martine & Martine!
