on the fourth date of Christmas...

Friday, December 11, 2015

my girl and I strung berries and popcorn by the Christmas tree.  Or really, I strung and she begged.  A tradition three years strong, and done with great ceremony of course -- candles flickering, Christmas movies playing, cinnamon tea to sip and lots of popcorn for her to munch on.

This task while tedious and sligtlhy old fashioned, part of the reason I love it so, is a tradition I cherish and hope to continue, especially with human children!  The contrast of shiny tinsel and glittery beads with fresh cranberries and popped corn, is my nod to the days of old.
