Christmas is coming...

... the goose is getting fat.

In my 21st century household for 'goose' read 'turkey' and for 'getting fat' read 'is on order'.Hopefully it will also be fat because it needs to feed a lot of people.  Meanwhile, although I have to brave a large supermarket one day before 25th December and there is the small matter of icing a cake, making stuffing for said bird and peeling mountains of vegetables, from a standing start last Friday (home from work for the holidays and not so much as a card written) things are looking quite festive around here

The door is wreathed

The holly by the front gate has excelled itself

and the tree is dressed in its finest jewels

The nativity scene that I set out each year

Is being rearranged by the next generation

Yet please, don't think I am being too smug.  I didn't quite get around to making some Christmas bunting

And some knitted presents may just be completed early for next year

But that's OK, we have enough and should not forget to...

... please put a penny in the old man's hat

Happy Christmas everyone and may the world have a more peaceful New Year

Happy Christmas to you and all your family. May it be safe and jolly. It has been a pleasure to read about your woolly adventures this year and I am looking forward to more in the new year.
