So am officially in the christmas spirit….yesterday was our christmas lunch followed by a screening of ELF in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar followed by christmas drinks in a nearby pub and today we got a half day and to start off my christmas break in style I mosied round the Docklands Christmas market enjoying some mulled wine! Hope you are all in the christmas spirit and enjoying that festive feeling!
Happy Flyday and to all a very merry Christmas!
And instead of quotes I will leave you with this…
A Christmas Blessing by John Greenleaf Whittier
During this Christmas season
may you be blessed
with the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
the gladness of the season,
which is hope,
and the heart of the season,
which is love.
Somehow, not only for Christmas,
but all the long year through,
the joy that you give to others
is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
the poor and lonely and sad,
the more of your heart’s possessing
returns to you glad.
