On December 21 many of us celebrate Yuletide, it is a custom from the old religion that falls on the first day of winter. The celebration is really the change of seasons from the dying of the old year that falls on Halloween to the rebirth of the new year symbolized by the deep sleep through winter, to the birth of a new season in spring. This is the religion of nature.
I took a few pictures of my tree and mantel decorated for Christmas, my cat Patches is in the window waiting for Santa! I also noticed a few missing ornaments from the bottom of my tree, maybe the innocent rag doll took them, or the snow fairy.
Bright Blessings to you and yours!
