'Twas the Night Before Christmas
A branch that had broken off the crab apple at the side of the house, in the last storm, has become our tree this year; and although we always go into the woods and collect bare branches to use for our tree, this was just to easy to resist. And the shape is such an orphan tree. But it's up and covered with light and angels and lavender hearts and gold balls and garlands of stars and sits very happily twinkling away. So from our home to your home, we [that's my darling J., Zoe and me] wish you a Merry Christmas, and let the 12 days of feasting, reading and generally making merry begin.
