Things that make you go Hmmmmm....

This is a post shout out to all my all fellow ex-pat bloggers readers out there in France.... Has anyone else besides me noticed that we are now at the END of January and many people/merchants STILL HAVE THEIR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS UP!! Clearly this must be a French thing. I know in the US that usually by the end of the first week of Jan. the Christmas decorations are DOWN! Any thoughts on this? Just wondering....

Yes! I've noticed it too. I don't mind it though as the city seems so drab with the current weather so it jazzes it up a little bit...

I'm starting to see windows getting ready for Valentine's Day-they've learned it is yet another way to make money. I'm wondering how long my neighbor across the way will leave up his decorations in his window.
