Christmas Carols at Le Manoir - Our first night!
Believe it or not tonight we start celebrating Christmas at Le Manoir, at our 12th century little St Marys Church.
Tonight we welcome 180 friends for a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception and we make our way in candlelight to the church. For me, it is a very special night because I will be giving a reading. I simply hope my British friends will forgive my strong French accent.
I have taken the liberty of creating my own reading as I've grown tired of listening to the same old readings when there are so many other wonderful materials.
I am not claiming that my reading will be pure literature but hopefully it will be interesting, entertaining and certainly heart felt.
Tonight, I will raise a glass to our good health, a happier world and let each of us be part of it.
May I wish you a very happy Christmas, albeit a little early.
