"I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men."
Wishing you and yours health and all possible good cheer on this day and throughout the coming year! 🎄 🔔 🎁 🎄
"Some say that ever 'gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
This bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow'd and so gracious is the time."
~ Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 1, William Shakespeare, 1599
May the joy of the holiday and season be with you and yours!
