If there is one word to describe this year’s Village Noël, it would be “magical.” The new strips of lights and the snow covering the ground made the site, all that much more mystical. The school day was particularly a success, which we will never forget. The laughter and smiles of children cannot be forgotten. The biggest challenge of this edition comes down to the cold northern winds, which made some merchants run after their things. The wind also enjoyed putting out the fires, which caused us to close a bit earlier. However, hats off to the volunteers and vendors who adjusted their setup accordingly to the weather. It is indeed another year to remember, a year from which the organizers emerge even more inspired.
