Winter fires and Wonderlands

It gets dark early and the elwen are busy decorating the large hall with candles and strings of dried berries and nuts. A large tree has been pulled in through the door and all the little elwen stand and stare at it as the older elwen hang bees wax decorations, ribbons and bows all around it. The large elf is due to arrive December 24th when all the little elwen sleep. Then, Christmas morning they wake to find boxes and bags filled with treasures. Little gnome toys, dance rings of ribbons, finger puppets, rocking chipmunks (they work the same as rocking horses that humans have), fairy houses, and even candy canes fill the space beneath the tree. Oh, the joy and sparkle in each little eye! It’s going to be a wonderful Christmas this year. IMG_6513
