Christmas Eve

We try to buy a Christmas ornament in each of the different places we live. This one is a clay, meticulously-painted, Andean Santa from Peru. It's about 25 years old and still no cracks or chips (thx, Elysa). [NOTE: Our tree this year is a beautiful Fraser fir (Abies fraseri (Pursh) Poir)].

I heartwarming photo. We have about a dozen of these hanging on our tree, a present of about 25 years ago - thanks Elysa!

I had forgotten that Elysa got two sets of these wonderful ornaments and that one of them was gifted in New Haven. Was pleased to hear that they have become part of your Christmas.
