So here are a few more views of the holiday decorations in St.-Aignan. Every year the town drapes these sheets of twinkling lights over many of the main streets in town. It's pretty cool.
And down by the bridge, there's a funky display of wooden cut-outs of Santa, elves, and reindeer that's also lit up. It's pretty kitschy, but there it is. Along the river, the street lampposts have bunches of lights on them.
Up in the upper Place Wilson, some of the plane trees are adorned with vertical strings of lights, very much like the trees along the Champs-Elysées in Paris. I've seen this a lot in France, so I think it's a very common thing for municipalities to do.
I don't know if you noticed, but in one of the photos you can see that the stained glass windows in the church are visible, lit from the inside. I don't know if this is normal or if it was because of something going on in the church; I'm seldom in town at night!
