The US hasn't cornered the market on tackiness

Strangely enough, the vichyssois seem to have the same Christmas-decoration philosophy as Americans. Despite the fact that they don't know when Thanksgiving is, they started with the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving, just the way we do. Spooky. Perhaps it's a coincidence or their tradition is to wait eight days after the Beaujolais Nouveau. Who knows?

De toutes les faons, Vichy is now full of light structures in the shapes of Pre Nol and other tasteful things. The Place de la Poste, just down the street, has been desecrated decorated with some lovely, natural-looking silver-white potted Christmas trees with blue accents that I am forced to lucky enough to walk past several times a day.
