Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace"

a very atmospheric, warm, beautiful Christmas postcard! 'Silent Night, holy night' is my favourite Christmas carol, but we sing it only at deep night - in German, of course, the original version of this sweet song. (There is a wonderful story how this song has been once created in Austria. I have to look for it on i-net to post this story eventually later.) Happy Christmas to you both!
Ginnie Hart: I love these model villages at Christmas time, Philine. "Silent Night" is definitely a classic when it comes to Christmas songs. Happy Christmas to you, too, of course.
Warm and welcoming, I love the red! Merry Christmas Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. I'm a glutton for these Christmas village models. smile
Nice Christmas shot, Ginnie - enjoy it!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Excellent presentation.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Louis.
Wedding tomorrow! Then the tribe Christmas day.....of course I am calm
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, then, Bill, you can at least stay bright. smile
calm and bright? I see it very dark Ginnie, refocus & a Happy Clear Christmas from yr Madrid amigo!!
Ginnie Hart: A light shines in the darkness, JC! smile A Happy Clear Christmas to you, too.
Love that there are people out and about in this little town, Ginnie. I remember as a child being enthralled looking at these Christmas vignettes and imagining I was one of the people living there. A lovely seasonal image, indeed.
Ginnie Hart: I think you and I must have seen the same vignettes, Beverly. smile Many kind thanks.

Silent night, holy night - the history of this famous carol: http://www.icce.rug.nl/~soundscapes/VOLUME02/Silent_Night_History.shtml
Ginnie Hart: Oh, thank you, Philine. And to think it was first composed for the guitar in 1818!

Nice lights, silhouettes smile
Merry christmas
Happy new year 2014
Ginnie Hart: Thank you very much, Helys! Merci.
This follows on nicely from the great mood we had at the carol service yesterday evening, the first time that Maureen and I haven't sung in the choir for a very long time on this occasion because of her still recovering from her operation.
Ginnie Hart: I bet it was very strange to be sitting in the audience, Brian, this time around. And all for good reason. Now you know what it's like to be on the other side...as do I, after all those years when I, too was in the choir. Thank you.

My apologies Ginnie, for the infrequent visits of late, I've been away and somewhat sidetracked. But I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and Astrid a joyous Christmas and creative new year.
Ginnie Hart: You've always been so faithful, George, no matter how late, and I thank you kindly. All my best wishes are with you and yours for this holiday season.
Happy Christmas, G&A!
Hey, are we still having Halloween here? wink
I mean it's the right type of orange, right?
Ginnie Hart: Make it a haunted house, LC, and it would be perfect. HA! Happy Christmas to you!
