Normandy is magical at Christmas, and Pont-Audemer is no exception. The main streets sparkle with overhead lights, and each shop and half timbered building is laden with traditional decorations. The butchers and bakers and fishmongers work long hours to deliver the Christmas and Réveillon feasts. And it’s not just the streets that light up. Here, Père Noël has had to borrow a boat to get the job done along one of Pont-Audemer’s charming canals.
