Merry Christmas!

Lights please...."And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.'"

"......That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

Today's beautiful beyond belief matchbox was made by Linda our gracious swap hostess. It has a gorgeous Nativity scene on the cover trimmed in gold foil. Inside, lying in the hay, snug under a small blanket adorned with the tiniest gold cross is Baby Jesus peacefully sleeping. I couldn't have hoped for a lovelier end to this wonderful month long joy fest! Thank you dear friend. I hope you know how much pleasure you've brought to all of us. Merry Christmas!
