@DP : well the crÃ¨che is of course christian, but the basic idea is that Christmas falls on the Winter solstice, just like other feasts in other religions in the Northern Hemisphere (taken from my sociology course)Said whom and can you prove that? I know you where born with the last rain and kiss arse when you are told to, me little brother, time for you to THINK outside the box.
Don't worry too much Loustic. I guess anyone that would like to figure it out themselves can do so including me when I get time!I'll try to find time to do it !
I liked everything I saw in Fort de Nogent, but I had very little time to "think" in front of the crÃ¨che : I was there as reservist and the CNE who is supervising me (and my studies) had warn me in advance : you can come for a "reservist weekend", but it means work and not always fun. He checked my health and the way I am now standing on my legs (he is an MD) and put me to work during the whole weekend !Don't worry too much Loustic. I guess anyone that would like to figure it out themselves can do so including me when I get time!
What were your thoughts on the crÃ¨che? Any pics? I'll let you post yours first
Here are a few I took in the CCH bar after

Built one every year when I was in. Very competitive amongst the escadrons in 1ER REC, imagine it is the same in every regiment.Hi All, I'm guessing most of the current or ex legionnaires have built a crÃ¨che with their sections whilst serving at this time of year. How long has the tradition been around? Since Algeria? Quite a big competition by the sounds of it. I heard one budding crÃ¨che building legionnaire who at the time was based in Tahiti had a brain wave of making a lagoon with live fish in it. Collected all sorts. Great idea until the fish all kicked the bucket just before presentation!
