Farewell 2012...


Each day in the French calendar refers to a Catholic saint (saint Eric is on May 18th for example!) and today is also known for being La Saint Sylvestre. Of course Dec. 31st is more famous for being the last day of the year, the day we celebrate the coming year. I thought a peaceful photo would be suitable... So here you go everyone, let me wish you a great year, wherever you are in the world. See you in 2013! FYI, the top of the tower with the cross in the background of this photo belongs to La Sainte Chapelle, on the the Ile de la Cité.

  2. Nice picture Eric! Signaling the end of the day “La Saint Sylvestre” and the end of the year.
    Bonne Année et Bonne Santé a toi Éric et a tous.
