Advent in Grassington

(viewed 1571 times)

Grassington has been holding a Dickensian Christmas for 25 years now. It embodies most concepts of advent.
I chose this image because of the involvement - everyone together, but each an individual, joining in the age old tradition of carol singing, complete with torches to chase away the midwinter dark.

May you enjoy your Christmas in your own way. Savour its magic moments.

Oh, this puts me in mind of the candlelit christmas carols we used to sing on the streets of the west end to raise money for the homeless when I was at school. I went to a convent grammer school, have no religious beliefs now, but it still strikes a chord when I see and hear candle lit carol services ..... we also dressed in dickensian clothes .... thanks for the memory, Viv ......

And I hope you and all your family have a lovely relaxing and enjoyable christmas :)

There's something special about carols and candlelight, people coming together, music, fire and dressing up. If the brain has a reset button I'm sure this is what hits it :)
