I love Christmas,
Eggnog with cookies,
is the best to eat.
Putting up trees and lights,
is always fun.
I love when the,
Rudolph - island of mis-fit toys,
comes on.
I also watch,
the Christmas movies.

CHRISTMAS SPAIN & ENGLAND : LOVE ANGELA🧡🧡🧡🧡
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was born in England but my DAD is Spanish
We often went to Seville for NATIVIDAD
LA VIRGINE MARIA is given her proper place !
She is the Patron Saint of Spain : And ....
8th DECEMBER is the Festival of the Immaculate Conception !
24t DECEMBER (NOCHEBUENA) is very important
The KINGS SPEECH is on Christmas Eve : We all go to MASS
On CHRISMAS DAY we eat TURKEY & Marzipan Cake
ON NEW YEARS EVE we eat 12 Grapes one for each Bell Dong !
6th JANUARY is EPIPHANY visit of LOS RAYOS MAGOS
That is When we got our major PRESENTS !
Houses & Churches & Market Places all had Nativity Scenes
And then Tableau of the Three Kings for EPIPHANY
Carols are mainly translations of English ones !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~For ME I love the CATHOLIC CHURCH but I attend EVANGELICAL
CHRISMAS in England is very secular and the VIRGIN MARY
Is not given her proper place ~ More than 50% of the
CHRISTMAS CARDS I get are secular not spiritual !
I do go to MASS on Christmas Eve and it revives
The MAGICAL Spanish CHRISTMAS' with MIS ABUELOS (Grandparents)
I miss EPIPHANY and presents from the THREE KINGS
As a committed Christian it amuses me that on alternate Years
The CHRISTMAS STAMPS are SECULAR a GPO OXYMORON !
Let us all put CHRIST back into CHRIST~MAS !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have yet to experience a KIWI & MAORI Christmas
And NEW YEAR (First Major Country to celebrate!)
But I will let you all know how it went !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please add a Poem to our Christmas Fusion : Love ANGELA


The time of the year
when I let down my hair
with one of my follies
a box full of goodies
which make me fat
but I’ll live with that
praline strawberry and caramel
at the winter solstice festival

Christmas beef and sugar treats
All those lovely things to eat
Grateful hearts and a time when
We can be a child again


I love Christmas,
and all it's music,
and the cookies,
it has to share.
I love candy cane,
and gingerbread,
in my coffee,
as it steams in the air.
I enjoy wrapping presents,
and knowing what they will be.
but even more,
I enjoy,
decorating the Christmas tree.
