Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Merry Christmas everyone or, as I say now and maybe for now on, Good Yule! I have decided to embrace Christmas' Pagan roots. Not like a neo-pagan, but more like a Godless heathen who loves the primitive symbolism of Christmas, which Christianity never really tamed. So yes, troll the ancient Yuletide carol, as I said before. And I associate Christmas with Norse mythology, from which it heavily borrows some of its most famous elements. Hence the Viking ship you can see on the picture at your left, it is a Christmas tree decoration my family bought in Sweden I believe. And there's a snowman who managed to get in the frame, but the thing I wanted to show the boat more. So yes, good Yule everyone! To my Christian readers, my fellow heathens and the rest. Eat, drink and be merry.
