And the stockings were hung on the chimney with care…
in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there!
*Oh the anticipation!*
Actually, I believe that I enjoy the season more than the actual day. Of course the day is wonderful, but I love having a continuous celebration; Thanksgiving through Christmas is such a joyful time for me! An extended time to really focus on thanking God for…everything.
(And aren’t the stockings pretty? Mom made them; I uncovered an old, beautiful coverlet, but it was too small for any of our beds. So mom and I are putting it to good use, and will spread the “pretty” around. Stockings, scarf, maybe a throw or two. Creating is so much fun!)
