'Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more.'
The tree is up!
...a tiny tree for I will be interstate with my sister and children while the Grinch enjoys a peaceful time at home.
Gifts are in the finishing stages
(others tucked away, finished and wrapped!
Op shops have been visited for perfect vintage stocking fillers (and a few goodies to keep!)
Stockings are washed ready to be filled for the trip South
and the Creche has come out of the freezer.
I found this beautiful set on Etsy a couple of years ago, hand carved in Bethlehem from local olive wood and Quarantine may have let a bug slip through with it... unless the little people were hungry in their first year in storage, for the following Christmas one of the sheep had been nearly devoured.
Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone.
