Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all peace and joy for the festive season,
however you celebrate it - whichever day, whichever traditions.

No new pictures today, but here are some lovely words...

It was snowing. It was always snowing at Christmas. December, in my memory, is white as Lapland, though there were no reindeers. But there were cats.

It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.

Always on Christmas night there was music...  Looking through my bedroom window, out into the moonlight and the unending smoke-coloured snow, I could see the lights in the windows of all the other houses on our hill and hear the music rising from them up the long, steady falling night. I turned the gas down, I got into bed. I said some words to the close and holy darkness, and then I slept.
All from A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas

I am laughing about what you said about you and your brother - "and then we had tea". You do have a way with words.
Both of these tags are really gorgeous Alison!
