Good Yule!


The air in the house is full of cardamom, cinnamon, bay and clove...and excitement: tonight is Christmas Eve.

I wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. I thought of you all on solstice a few days ago, while lighting my midwinter's eve candles, and wished you peace and light.

Thanks to Charles Dickens, the very words I am searching for are already written for me:

May it be truly said of us, and all of us....that we know how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possesses the knowledge.

God bless us, every one!

Let us be amongst the first to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas holiday. May it be full of cookies and candies, may it be full of love and laughter, may it linger long in your memories and longer in your spirits. I echo the words of the literary worlds most famous cripple, 'Ow, I've got crutch rot' ...
