Choosing a Christmas Card for 2018


Christmas cards have arrived and now my inability to make a decision for my own card has been compounded by Winter Solstice closing in. From the recently arrived post I search out my favoured Madonna and Child's, the nativity scenes are still there, the jokey style has all but disappeared, Father Christmas ranges from the sentimental Victorian to more recent incarnations and the snow-scenes gather, with the cherished robin red-breast breasting all competition for the number one slot albeit the donkey is in the running. I trawl my own snow-scenes, which have nothing to do with the above, and settle for Halvergate Marshes and Mongolia .... Be wild and be happy and have a fabulous Christmas!
