Day 19 All aglow

This year it seems Christmas has a very different feel to it, lots of people have said so. We were going to put up a very different post to this one but then the shooting in Conneticut happened. CandyMan is a primary school teacher currently on sabbatical, but he went in to school yesterday for a special assembly where teachers, pupils and parents tried to make sense of the events of last Friday. He suggested we make our advent calendar post for children but with no talk of gun laws, or mental health or politics. This was the result...



"O little Christmas candle

In the window all aglow,
To-night your little beams must shine

Across the Christmas snow.

Lest He should find it dark Who came

To bring the world a light.
The little Christ Child walks again

On earth each Christmas night"

Merry Christmas mobloggers. Craft and I don't have much Christian belief but my school is CofE. The words were among those read at the assembly and the childishness of them really worked for me.
