First Thursday Drinks (virtual) on January 7th

This week and year starts off with a bang (or was that a Champagne cork I heard?):

Sunday, January 3rd

The new Congress is sworn in.

Monday, January 4th

La réentrée - For many of us, it's back to work / school.

Tuesday, January 5th

Senate runoff elections in Georgia.

Wednesday, January 6th

The official opening and counting of the Electoral College ballots, confirming Joe Biden as President-elect and Kamala Harris as Vice-President-elect, followed by a futile effort by certain "sore losers" to overturn the election results for President (but not for down-ballot races, including themselves in some cases).

Celebration in France of Epiphany, with the traditional Galette des Rois (don't break a tooth on the hidden fairy - the hospitals are already too busy!)

Thursday, January 7th

The return of First Thursday Drinks with Democrats Abroad Lyon (virtual via WebEx):

- Recap of the week's events so far.

- Farewell to Julie Shapiro who is leaving Lyon for Israel to pursue her research into viral infections.
