Christmas is coming

Some of the parcels are wrapped
 - and posted away.

Some parcels have arrived 
and await a place under the Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree in the church is decorated,

and the Nativity has been set up.

Today along the main road of town 
the Christmas tree is being erected.

All I have to do is finish wrapping my parcels 

and write out and post my cards.

I love this time of year,
especially as it gets closer to Christmas.
I know some people think it's a hassle
 but I love the hustle and bustle, 
the crowds and the noise,
the kids excitement (and sometimes tears),
the end of year school concerts and other functions,  
the decorations in the streets and shops,
the carols and songs
and the busyness of it all.

So I wish you all a hassle free December
and a wonderful Advent
as we lead up to Christmas
and the celebration of the birth of Christ.



  1. Thank you Diana. I love Christmas as well! We put up our decorations on Friday with Christmas music playing. I've written all the cards and will
    Start wrapping the presents today. Everyone is always so happy. At this time of the year. Well, most people anyway!! Take care.

  2. I can remember as a child feeling *the magic of Christmas in the air*. The feeling is more vague now... but has not disappeared completely. Having kids and grandkids around helps.

  3. I do enjoy Christmas too, especially this year when we have a wee grandson to enjoy it with :))
    You are so organised, I haven't even finished shopping yet!!!

  4. Lovely Nativity scene, Diana! I am going to see my granddaughter in her first Christmas concert on Wednesday - she is going to be singing 'Away in a Manger' and 'Jingle Bells.' And I lit the Advent Candle this evening - so magical. Love it all!!

  5. Yes, I love this time of the year too! But I always tell my hubby that I wish I could slow each day down because I enjoy this time of the year and want it to last instead of flying by quickly.

  6. Hi Diana! Oh, everything looks so wonderful. I crocheted a little Nativity very much like yours long ago. I think I still have it. I love this time of year too. Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
