Friday Faves – Edition 46

  Friday Faves. It's already Friday. I hope that if you celebrated Christmas that it was a lovely day. We went to a Candlelight Christmas Eve Service and had our traditional Christmas Eve feast.

I titled my post, Festival of Trees, because that is what I call it. Its actual name is Fashions for Evergreens.   Quite a "fashionable" name, don't you think?   [...]
