Christmas time

Photobucket

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens

That's such a pretty tree Ewa. Did you grow all the botanical goodies hanging on it?

Mr. Dickens was so correct. Merry Christmas!

This wise thought Charles Dickens probably wrote when he finished his famous Christmas tale thinking of the change of Mr Scrooge's behaviour ;-) !! The sentiment is still valid today...Have a blessed Christmas holiday, dear Ewa.

I LOVE the dried fruit on the Christmas tree. Natural decorations are always my favorite. This one is beautiful!
