Any day soon we would be going and buying our Christmas tree. Hopefully this will happen before the shops are sold out....
The little crochet Nativity characters have been on the bookshelf all year. I kept them out on purpose as a sort of "memory of Christmas". They are a cheerful bunch - most of the figurines in the Nativity sets seem to be rather serious, or Holy, or Majestic, or over-awed.
This lot all look as if they are having a great time together. Even Baby Jesus has big cheesy grin on his face.
When we get the tree up, they will disappear behind its branches, and presumably continue partying in their own secret world?
