Christmas Eve in Ireland

The cottage awaits Christmas.

Visitors are on their way from Canada.

Logs are chopped and ready for the stove and the table is dressed for the festive coming together.

Holly and ivy decorate the widow ledges.
The tree stands by the window, reflecting lights into the darkness of the midwinter night.

Christmas has arrived!

I wish you a very Happy Christmas!
May you enjoy quiet contentment in all you do this festive season.

And my recipe for a lovely Christmas is simple…a long walk on Christmas day, followed by some good food, drink and a cozy evening, with friends, family, or, by oneself…
Merry Christmas

Perhaps the loveliest version of this beautiful carol — In the Bleak Midwinter {Robert Shaw} http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39h3VVfOoW0&feature=share via @youtube
