The Light of Hope

(viewed 1381 times)
Christmas is a light to me, beautiful and so warm.
Not that I'm that religious or something.
Just my inner child is waiting impatiently every year for this magic of light,the snowy scenery and the whole atmosphere. :)
But the mature part now knows…
When somewhere the air smells like pine branches and woodsmoke; people are more and more excited, it's December already.
Especially hard time to find a light of hope if your
"battery life is dripping,Painfully falling from the sky like drops do".
(MagnusHunter)
And maybe the little light of hope is like the modest candlelight in the window, absolutely real, but not easy to notice among the all expansive, sea of spectacular, fake lights…

I wish you all, dear friends, Magic, Beautiful, Happy, Christmas and a heart full of hope and love, the whole year. xxx

Christmas Trees

(viewed 1381 times)
When a towns centre piece tree gets some lights added to it, in December, it's changed forever. It is known as the Christmas tree.

Or at least for a month or so.

Wishing you all, a very merry Christmas,

Decorations

(viewed 964 times)
Last year, I went to Copenhagen for a "Christmas Market Getaway" and came
across a shop filled with Christmas based items. It was literally like
being a kid in a sweet shop, for grown ups. There were so many things in
there which reminded me of being a child and Christmas and all the magic
and excitement I used to feel. Had I not had a limited weight limit for my
flight back I would have bought nearly the whole shop back with me!

A 'proper' advent calendar (well you did say no chocolate)

(viewed 985 times)
I have an advent calendar for the first time in years this year.

When we were very little, me and Beth didn't have chocolate advent calendars. Instead we shared a rather beautiful advent calendar shaped like a tree angel/fairy. It had glitter on it. We used the same calendar every year for years, as we'd shut the doors on it before putting it away ready for the next year. Over time some of the doors fell off, but I don't think we minded because we loved our calendar. I think the 24th opened up onto a picture of baby Jesus. The rest of the pictures were things like bells, holly leaves and presents. I'm not sure what happened her, she probably disintegrated with overuse!

Holiday Train

(viewed 1163 times)
This year, Canadian Pacific's Holiday Train made a stop at the Montreal West station. Although the Montreal West Junction was once a busy station, giving the small town its name, it been a long time since anything more exciting than a commuter train passed through the centre of town. It was fun to watch the illuminated train coming down the tracks and pulling into the station. The last box car opened up into an outdoor stage for a short concert of Christmas songs such as Run, Run Rudolph. Then the stage was folded back up into the train, and it disappeared into the night!
