Goodness me, December seems to be flying along at a tremendous rate. I hope you are all trying to keep relaxed and not to get too stressed out with all the preparations! Exciting though, isn't it?!
I was thinking this morning about an incident when Eleanor was about four years old. On the Sunday before Christmas, they always had a Christmas Tree Service in the Church that I attended, and I thought it would be lovely to take Eleanor along.
She hadn't been in Church before, and I explained that we had to be quiet, and that we would be placing baby Jesus in the Manger. She was sat beside me, being as good as gold, when suddenly, a couple of pews back from us, a little baby started crying.
I will never forget how she looked at me with huge eyes, and said "is that baby Jesus, Grandma?!" I explained this to the Vicar, and Eleanor had the honour of placing the baby in the Manager. She was completely overawed by it all, but it is such a treasured memory for me!
Here are a few vintage Christmas card images, featuring Father Christmas, which I hope you will enjoy.
See you again for my Christmas Sunday Song!
Sending hugs from my home to your home.
