I’d forgotten what a delight this simple tradition was, and in fact had not done so in a number of years. I was quickly reminded; however, when returning from visiting a relative late Christmas day. No need to describe what I saw. They say seeing is believing . . .

Christmas 2013: My Way

Standard

Rather than to reinvent the wheel I will simply repost a previous blog I did about the 12 Days of Christmas . . . . https://scoop1942.wordpress.com/2011/12/12/on-the-12th-day-of-christmas/ I also wanted to point you to another blog that illustrates 12 traditions of Christmas . . . . http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2010/12/christmas-traditions-from-around-the-world-infographic/ and to complete this years Christmas offering I will post new photos with Santa on the 25th after all of the festivities have ended.

I’ve been remiss in keeping up with my personal blog, but promise to rectify it in 2014 and do my very best to offer a new post on a weekly basis.
