Christmas 2018

Christmas Day, is almost here. Santa tracker is already tracking Santa and his reindeer on the other side of the world.

Christmas, has crept up faster than I had expected. This evening, I have been baking apple pies for dinner, on Christmas Day. Shortbread cookie dough mix, is in the fridge, waiting for the pies to be done. The smell from the kitchen is intoxicating. The dressing for the turkey, has been partially prepared for Tuesday Christmas. I love to cook, and the menu for Christmas Day, will be a delight on the palate. With fourteen, family members visiting for dinner, on Christmas Day. On Boxing Day, there are another seven family members visiting.

Our Christmas tree, is different this year. This creation is what, I like to call a “Christmas Ladder Tree.” In the day time, you can see all the decorations, that make up this tree. In the evening the lights, add a beauty, that will make you stare. Your curiosity, will draw you closer to see the lights, that glow from this tree.

DSCN0418 (1).JPGAs we worked on the tree, it came to life. Each piece was added, with loving care. The placement, of each village scene, had been moved more than once. I wrapped the lights, down the front of the tree, cascading some lights to the bottom. One light fills each village piece, with a subtle glow, they would make you think, someone was really at home.  The villagers, hustle around, passing Christmas cheer. The children, roll snow balls, large, medium and small to create a snowman. Ice skaters, twirl, spin and some even fall down. The Post Office, is busy with villagers, picking up there presents.  A young fella puts his Santa letter, into a mail box. As, Santa sits reading letters, and checking, his list twice.

    1. Santa Claus 🎅 lives at the North Pole is where it’s so cold that you can freeze 🥶 your toes in minutes. Where the wind blows cold. Santa’s home is hidden in the deep snow ❄️. At least it is for me.
      I must say Sartenada, I love your photographs. You have a great talent.
