On Saturday night our little village celebrated the summer solstice with a fête des voisns. All the neighbors of the village came together in the square for a pot luck supper & an evening of fun. The little invitation that was hand delivered to each resident of the village said bring your chair, a dish to share, something to drink & your good humor. In France apparently a pot luck dinner is called an "auberge d' espagnol".
Well needless to say there was plenty of good food & drink as well as plenty of good humor to go around!
It was a lovely evening where neighbors met neighbors & shared in the bounty of summer.
As seems to always be the case in France this was a fête that embraced all generations from the very young to all the respected older residents.
We had a beautiful night for it & it could not have been a lovelier way to welcome the first day of summer.
I hope you were able to celebrated the summer solstice with good neighbors, good food & most of all good humor.
