our favorite phrase of the Christmas Season. . .
Noel is a French word
originating from Latin meaning "birthday".
|The blocks spelling N O E L were made by "Mr. Ed" !|
Another source states,
Noel has a French origin meaning "Christmas".
|Atop the red china cabinet on the lower level,|
a fitting place of presence
for our family "Christmas" celebration !
Pronounced. . . NOH ~
|Joined by our Garden Fairy,|
she is keeping watch over our festivites
from on high !
|Faux greenery, vintage Christmas ornaments|
a vintage butter churn and our Garden fairy
make a lovely sight to behold atop the red cabinet !
So~o~o. . .
if one combines the two,
|"Mr. Ed" and I wish you a Joyeux N O E L !|
you have. . . Christmas birthday !

My Christmas letter header
was written days before the events of Newton, Connecticut.
N O E L
". . .the Angels did say
was to certain poor shepherds in fields where they lay."
Even in His beginning ~
Christ came to give hope
to shepherds in difficult and trying times.
The same holds true today
in these difficult and trying times ~
Christ comes to give us hope.
N O E L
Until next time. . .
