Christmas Clothing

On Christmas morning our whole family dress up for our church service. We take out our Sunday best and put on any special new jewellery or clothing we have received for Christmas. As we’re all staying together we jostle for the bathroom and ask each other for opinions on how we look. In a way,…

Christmas Stockings are bags of anticipation. As a child I remember putting mine by the chimney on Christmas Eve and struggling to get to sleep knowing that in the morning the stocking would be filled.
