Father Christmas!

Today, I am keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive by thinking about the big man himself, Father Christmas!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. 
Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus.
- Francis Pharcellus Church

Father Christmas

 Thanks for having me Maureen!


Best wishes,

Decorating Ideas for your Christmas Stairs!

Today I thought I might share some of my favourite ideas on how to decorate a staircase at Christmas. I have pinned so many staircase pictures because that is the place where I usually hang our stockings since we don't have a fireplace. 

Decorating Ideas for your Christmas Stairs

I really want to make it look much more festive this year and I think I have some great ideas that I might be able to try.

My Favourite Time of Year by The Florin Street Band

I found this wonderful Christmas song, My Favourite Time of Year by The Florin Street Band  via Dorothy who writes the festive blog Joys of Christmas. 

Joys of Christmas

It's a great new Christmas song which was made without corporate backers. Here is what is stated on the You Tube site:

My Favourite Time of Year  is a new Christmas song set in Victorian England. Please share this video with your friends and help us make the Christmas charts by downloading the song from iTunes or Amazon in December 2011. This Victorian-themed Christmas song and video was produced without record company backing. After trying to gain record company support, British composer, Leigh Haggerwood, decided to make it happen himself so he gathered together his musician friends and wrote, produced and sung this Christmas songs himself. The video features the skills of top director Nick Bartleet and Cinematographer John Perez (known for his work on Coldplay's Viva La Vida, Beyoncé and many other productions). You can help spread some Christmas magic so please visit our website and join us on Facebook. Thanks for your support and best wishes for Christmas 2011!

If you are like me as soon as you hear it and watch the film clip I'm sure you will want to download it to your own library to give them a helping hand!
