Entries in Christmas eve (2)



Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strain

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

-James Chadwick (1862), Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle

Happy Christmas Eve, everybody. [NOTE: Angel ornament, handmade in Nepal, is hanging from the dining room window].


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)].
