Christmas one day at a time

"I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays--let them overtake me unexpectedly--waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: 'Why this is Christmas Day!'"

Ray Stannard Baker

At Christmas, 'It's a Wonderful Life' makes me cry in exactly the same places every time, even though I know it's coming. #Christmas Quotes

I picked up a tiny Angel pretty much like the one above while visiting the Lincolnshire Cathedral this November. Did I ever mention the fact that I collect angels. The little one that I found in the Church gift shop just jumped out at me, begging to be taken home.  She now lives with us several thousands of miles from where I found her. :)
