I know you expect me to show you some pictures, even in a Christmas post, so what could be more appropriate than a few photos of our Christmas tree, which sits neatly in a corner of our Living Room:
Red and gold is evidently our chosen colour scheme this year, but take a closer look. What sort of decorations have we used? Not the traditional ones, that's for sure...
The lights are in the form of my beloved chilli peppers

In my humble opinion, a magical combination, which imparts a real warm (hot??) glow!
Up at the top of the tree is this little "Angel" - a fluffy Teddy-bear with golden wings!
While behind him, hanging from the curtain rail, is this piece of painted glassware, featuring Poinsettias and Holly. When the sun shines through it this is really lovely. We've had it for many years, and these days it always hangs in the same place each Christmas.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS, Everyone!
