Peach on earth. Good will toward men.

Tomorrow is Christmas, 2014 and I wish you all the joys of the season and the very best of everything for the New Year. Let us all pray, regardless of the faith that each of us espouses, for peace and love and kindness to all.

This little Santa has been on my Christmas tree since I was first aware of Christmas. It was on my Dad's tree when he was an infant. As the eldest of four siblings, I was given this little batting ornament and I treasure him even though he is faded and tatty and missing one arm! Some day, when he is old enough to appreciate him, I will give my Santa to Oliver.
Here is my treasured little amputee Santa.

                   And I wish you this much joy and wonder this Christmas. God bless you all!

                                           Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!

  2. A very merry christmas to you and all your family. In answer to your question on my blog - yes, the bird has a spun glass tail. He's one of my favourites and I've had him years - though not as long as you've had your lovely Santa.
    Love AJ
