Jolie petite décoration. J'aime la maxime.

A great quote to accommodate this cute capture! Here's to a season of wonderful Christmas spirit.

The only thing I can think of to say is in my lifetime Christmas has morphed into a giant retail opportunity. Which is a pity..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - but those of us who keep the meaning in our hearts, keep it alive.
That is what it should be. Instead it is racist chanting at a football match and the prospect of huge amounts of food being thrown away by people who have too much.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - absolutely!

Yes, one remembers the tenderness of the past
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: And hopes we can continue to raise it back into the future!

The past is only tender when one consider certain beautiful promising moments and ignore mankind at its worst for most of the time.

I agree with some of the comments. Christmas has become a time of enormous extravagance for so many people. Defining Christmas could be very difficult. Because of all the sentiment, I will see my grandchildren tomorrow and Wednesday - at least that is some perk smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do try to focus on love, compassion, forgiveness... the ideals of the Christ child.
Nice little card and very good thoughts.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian!

Aww....love the lighting on this..Merry Christmas!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bonnie! Merry Christmas to you!
Mostly, sadly, these days, an opportunity for selling!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think most people keep the love in their hearts...
A time for anticipation, reflection and indigestion
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well said!
For me it is a journey through December with all it's personal meanings. I am glad when it is over. Real Grinch, I know.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I understand.... not Grinchy...
So very true,Elizabeth...and perfect for NOW in this world!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes... Thank you, Ginnie!
