Christmas Memories


When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow,
We hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago,
And etched on vacant places
Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish,
And loves we used to know.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

A lovely rhyme and very evocative. I don't have to buy a Christmas card for my mum or my dad anymore but memories of Christmas past with them are very much alive in my mind still!
I like your Christmas pictures.
Blessings, Star

What a beautiful blog to see this cold blustery morning. I just love the music playing. Normally, I have my speakers muted but for some reason today they weren't and I'm glad.
