The fireplace in New France really does add to the ambience during Christmastown, so I'm glad they did add a working one this year.

Does anyone remember when there used to be peacocks in New France? I remember them in the early 2000s. Kids would chase them and I secretly hoped one would bite them.

I remember them. I thought that they roamed the park because I remember them in Aquitaine.

I miss things like that. Honestly I miss the whole look and feel of the area before the Trappers Smoke House renovation.

The peacocks generally stayed in the Trappers Village area, but also frequented the maintenance buildings. They would come and go through the buildings all the time.

My mom worked for the park in around the mid-90s and the peacocks were roaming around that time as well. I remember seeing them hang out at the France Train Station.

Apparently they were fairly mean and would sometimes attack so employees had a healthy fear of them.

The peacocks and peahens are free to roam about the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk.  They can often be found in the parking lot and have on occasion been known to range out into the adjacent neighborhood.  Aparently every once in a while the zoo gets a call to come collect their bird(s) as they are intimidating someone's relative.

I woke up to a group of peahens in my back yard once. Never figured out where they came from... I don't think I lived near a zoo.

I read this first as you woke up while sleeping IN your back yard and there just happened to be a flock of peahens. I'm just going to go with that being the truth.

So, New France news: Look for a new Canadian-themed shop (your guess is as good as mine as to what this means) to take over the candle shop building in 2016.

I assume there will be hockey sticks lining the wall, barrels filled with beer, poutine, and flannel clothes.

Candle shop is moving to Trading Post and the actual candle shop will be converted to some beer/wine tasting thing.

I take it the candles arent selling as well as they used to

Well the candle shop has been emptier this year which I conclude is probably due to the heart attack that the carver suffered last year. I don't think he's had the energy to create enough to keep up.

The carver had a heart attack? I thought that was the guy from the Forge at Mistletoe Marketplace...
