|Decorations on tree|
Among the festivities we decorated the end of a bit of tree with crepe ribbons and the builders put it up on the scaffolding. The branch came from the tree just in front of the house.
The owner of the building firm and his colleague then read a traditional poem from the roof wishing us luck and thanking the builders for their hard work. After a couple of toasts and some applause, they threw their wine glasses to the floor which duly smashed, thereby ensuring good luck, health, happiness, etc.
