Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I love the green...red...and golden hues that give my place a very festive look, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord. Adorning the house with decorations is a ritual of sorts...which sets in the spirit for Christmas...along with all the carols and baking ! Our Christmas ornaments have been collected over the years...and they all have a story to tell. This year was made special by my poinsettias which bloomed in all their glory !
