Christmas Spirit..

From the short story by Louisa May Alcott, "A Christmas Dream, And How It Came True".
For Christmas tide is here


From our happy home
Through the world we roam
One week in all the year,
Making winter spring
With the joy we bring
For Christmas-tide is here.


Now the eastern star
Shines from afar
To light the poorest home;
Hearts warmer grow,
Gifts freely flow,
For Christmas-tide has come.


Now gay trees rise
Before young eyes,
Abloom with tempting cheer;
Blithe voices sing,
And blithe bells ring,
For Christmas-tide is here.


Oh, happy chime,
Oh, blessed time,
That draws us all so near!
"Welcome, dear day,"
All creatures say,
For Christmas-tide is here.


These pictures were taken at Calas Galadhon, a place where the Christmas Spirit truly lives. I had looked around the Grid for a spot full of Christmas spirit and found this beautiful place..the homes are decorated with lovely Victorian touches. There is Turkey cooking in the kitchens and Presents under the tree, skiing and tobogganing and skating on the pond. Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith are the kind souls behind these 3 sims, they both wanted people to know that the Sims will be open until the end of January (Winterfest) and all are welcome to visit. I am posting this between putting on the Turkey, welcoming guests and preparing the vegetables…. I have been busy with a house full of hungry messy family and may not be posting much until the New Year. My Dress is a pretty special offering from A La Folie, La Precieuse (includes jewellery and shoes) 1000L, my hair is from Hal*Hina, my skin is Tuli , FYEO & RYLO, {oddment} Santa Lucia Crown&Candle for Twisted Krissmass, Crown Balderdash Gaudette (secret santa, thank – you!). Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas! Kisses and Hugs for all!!!
