Merry Christmas from Bourdeilles

Although nowhere near the level of entertainment presented by the current American political scene, France has it's share of peppy polarizing politics. Our village is a microcosm of this multi-party wallapalooza.

Here is how this year's Christmas tree came to be.

First the Socialist persuaded the Republicans to have it paid for by the government.

The tree was, of course, selected by the Green Party.

And it was immediately and thoroughly inspected by the Front National Party to make sure that the tree was completely pure French.
Decorating fell to the Communist Party.
In the end, despite their differences, everyone had a fine time. 
Merry Christmas from Bourdeilles!
