Comfort dressing………..

It’s up and dressed!
The tree that is 🙂

You can see I’m a creature of habit
because the little tree has always  gone on the hall table.

And the big one has a spot near the lounge room window.

There seems to be comfort in bringing out all the little trinkets collected over the years.  There are handmade ornaments, ones gifted from friends, others reminders of travels – this Ferrero Rocher tree we saw in Orchard Road Singapore last year (Dec 2013) was a comfort of a different sort 🙂

Even tho’ I don’t have one in the house this nativity setting at the front of what used to be the train station in the small town of Corinto, Nicaragua  is like my Christmas Trees – a mixture of all things; look closely and you’ll see Santa in there as well as a Snowman!  One local told me it was placed there every year and certainly is a comfort to all who pass by.

And here is one very large Nativity setting that was hard to miss –
set by the roadside in Aruba December 2012

Yes there is fun and laughter at Christmas but there is also a message
Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

Merry Christmas everyone 🙂

  1. Love your little tree. I have one too. If I don’t get it set up today…..

    As for joe Crocker. Never heard of him. Had no interest in Woodstock. Sex, drugs and rock and roll were never my thing. I had a Marine husband and kids and thought all those youths in the muddy fields were ungrateful brats who conflicted with the cops who were the sons of poor immigrants and not unlike the brats in the streets of NYC today.

    Ps I did hear at least one of these songs on the radio back when I was driving myself from work to school every day. Pretty thing.
