Christmas, 2017

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.  I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.  I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!” – spoken by Ebenezer Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens

My morning runs and evening walks in my local neighbourhood here in North Saanich are adventures of new sights during the weeks leading up to Christmas.

We don’t have any snow here but the wintry Christmas themes are on full display.

Animal themes figure prominently…………

…………………..polar bears by day and by night…………..

…………..the beloved Disney characters…………….

……………mice in the morning, and mice at night………..

………..and raccoons, no friends of mine but admittedly, cute here.

Here’s a cluster of tennis-themed ornaments on our Christmas tree.

And one of my oldest and most favourite personal tree ornaments:

I hearken back to the words of an enlightened Ebenezer Scrooge.

Enjoy this wonder-filled season.  Happy Christmas time!
