Christmas in Cognac - just plug & play
There is a report in our local paper, the Charente Libre, this week about christmas festivities in the town of Cognac.
As well as the usual wooden cabins, mulled wines and frosty window displays it says that on Saturday we can take the girls through to the town centre so they can "chat live to Father Christmas via satellite".
Next thing we know the lazy old blighter will be sat at the North Pole, playing on his Wii, while entirely outsourcing christmas to Amazon.
