Only Three days to Christmas….

Today I want to wish all my followers Seasons greetings for this festive time. I know that we all have different ways of celebrating and also different faiths but this is the time of the year for me to celebrate Christmas. Being a December baby I have always loved Christmas time, the carols, decorating the house and bringing in the Christmas tree or even putting up the fake one; the family traditions and then joy on  peoples faces as they gather with their families and friends.

This year is a little different its been harder somehow to get into the spirit of the season. My decorations are more low key as I have no family visiting this year, I am going to my sister’s for Christmas Lunch then back to my Brother’s for the evening meal.

There have also been so many momentous happenings here in New Zealand with another major earthquake shaking us badly and creating chaos and recently our Prime Minister suddenly resigning,. Internationally Donald Trump in America winning the Presidential race, Brexit in Britain and so many injustices around the world in war zones and terrorism in cities like Paris and just last night Berlin. just to name a few.Each year we ask for Peace but it never happens.

I guess that the best we can do in our small corner of the world is to share love and happiness with those close to us and  in our community  too. As a country far away from the unrest of the world we are known to be generous and supportive of those in need all over the world as well as in our own backyard. We must all lead by example and show the way  so I wish you all

Joy, Peace and Happiness this Christmas and for the coming Year.

    I identify with this post, Lynne. I know the desolation of the thought, “Each year we ask for Peace but it never happens,” but felt comforted by your last paragraph as I realized all I can do is try to make my little corner of the world a happier, better place. Thank you for reminding me.

      A very lovely post indeed, I’ve been meaning to have a look at your blog for some time now and I’m glad I finally did to find this post. It really puts our own problems in perspective when we look at the world around us, but you hit the nail on the head with your last paragraph. I hope your Christmas was nice.
