On a small forum today we were encouraged to write about what we consider "Holiday Values". This is what I wrote. ' For me Christmas is about valuing the time I get to spend with my family. Appreciating the Christian beliefs behind it, and renewing my faith in the 'season of goodwill'. I value the warmth and happiness I feel as the decorations go up in the house and Christmas music is played. I have tried to instal into the children the value that less is more. Each year we buy a present from the local charity shops to help them understand the importance of giving and that the cost is not the main priority.'

First of December, so out comes the Advent calendar. We've actually got 2. One in the traditional A4 sized paper one with a lovely nativity scene and doors. Except we've had it years, mum gave it to us, and the doors never get opened! The other is one I bought a couple of years ago in a B & Q sale. Initial thoughts were to alter it, but I've grown used to it as it us. Ella helped me last night put a chocolate in each drawer - I wonder why that was LOL. And of course, the first thing she said this morning happened to be about Advent chocolate. So here's a photo of said Advent box.
