Madame Mayor and the ladies decorate the box trees around the village green. The end effect quite underwhelming. ' Perhaps it's radical minimalism ' suggests 'the font' determined to find something, anything, positive to say.
While the ladies decorate the village green, the mayor sets up the crib in the church. We are invited in to look at it. It is literally a crib with a straw covered doll in it. The church is then locked and will remain locked until after the New Year. '' We've always done it " says Madame Mayor. Angus can't help but think that setting up a crib in locked and empty church is something that only Stephen King could dream up.
The builders are still hard at work on the gatehouse of the chateau. So much for it being ready in time for the holidays. The builders have a rather affable hunting dog called Emile. Emile is all ears. He also adores Sophie. Sadly, for Emile, Sophie considers him to be a brute and makes a variety of growling noises to show it. Emile backs away.
