Todays Poem - Christmas Bells by John Clare
The singing waits, a merry throng,
At early morn with simple skill,
Yet imitate the angel's song
And chant their Christmas ditty still;
And, mid the storm that dies and swells
By fits, in hummings softly steals
The music of the village bells,
Ringing round their merry peals.
Todays prompt by Shimelle was about Traditions. I like that my Christmas is a mixture of things that have always been and some things that are new. We have always hung up a stocking on Christmas Eve - that includes everyone, even the adults. Santa still puts an apple and an orange in the adults stocking - but not the boys!!!! Since we got married my husband always buys me a Poinsetta plant for Christmas. Some things - like doing this journal are newer traditions. I wonder what my children will remember as traditions and want to carry on when they are adults.
