Wishing all of my readers a very Merry Christmas this year. May you find joy in your celebrations, comfort in your sorrow and hope in the birth of the babe for whom this day exists.
And the angel said to them, Fear not: for behold I bring you tidings of great joy which will be for all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11)
It’s hard to maintain an element of simplicity at Christmas time. The stores and the internet are bursting to overflowing with everything from sublime to ridiculous, all advertised as must-have and must-do this year. On the weekend all my bins of Christmas Past came out of storage. To be honest, I took out a few things and set them up, then closed the bins to be put away. I played a board game with Personally Junior then we watched A Charlie Brown Christmas. (The first of many times this Christmas, probably!) So here for the next little while I’ll be sharing my few attempts at keeping it simple, but still Christmas-y and worthy of the season of celebration.
