MONOCHROME MONDAY #129: A CHRISTMAS IN FRANCE


Arriving in a small rural village from Paris, we found that Christmas away from the city was a noticeably more austere occasion.  The streets were empty, many shops and restaurants were closed and decorations were fairly sparse.  Christmas seemed to be celebrated with only a perfunctory commitment to tradition unlike the enthusiastic glitz and extravagance of Paris's big department stores, street markets and the municipal authorities.
