Original, the municipal decree.

The mayor of Marcq-en-Barœul, in the North, has a sense of humor.

In a most official document (but which must be read, of course, in the second degree), Bernard Gérard prepares the ground for Santa Claus on the evening of December 24 to 25.

"Considering the delay accumulated by Santa Claus during the Covid period and that it is imperative to bring joy and happiness to all Marcquoise families", measures were therefore taken by the town hall on the evening of 24 to December 25th.

First of all, "Santa Claus will be freed from speed restrictions in 30 zones". his tour, which would render the magic of Christmas inoperative.

Finally, he “will be authorized to park and circulate on the roofs of houses”.

We have fun in Marcq-en-Barœul.
