White Christmas.

Everywhere I look, a pristine white blanket covers my immediate surroundings, adding an enchanted feel to this special day.
Today is Christmas Eve and the culmination of the Holiday Season has begun. For the second consecutive year our Christmas is white, a truly rare occurrence in my part of the world and one for the record books for sure.

Nevertheless, the snow creates a truly spellbound atmosphere, a picture perfect reality, so magical and dreamy...

As I savour this ethereal stillness of the early morning, I am transported back to the days of my childhood, when happiness would envelop my entire being as soon as I opened my eyes. The anticipation and excitement was one of the kind and holding onto it through the years, being able to feel this way still - keeps my heart and soul as pristine as the white snow outside.

I would like to wish all of you reading this a wonderful Christmas, spend among your loved ones. I also would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your endless visits here in the past year, always offering words of kindness and comfort, making 2010 a great year indeed.
I am taking a holiday break and will be back shortly after New Year.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

But today all my wishes for you happiness and love.

Zuzana
Your post are always written with great adjectives and phrases a great author would use in a novel. Thank you for your inspiring posts! You truly are a blessing! It looks as though we too will have a White Christmas. That song is one of my favorites sung by none other than my Rosemary Clooney. Christmas blessings from LadyCat and me. xo

2010 sure was a great year.
Happy holidays and enjoy the snow, things might change again next year

Hope your Christmas was the most wonderful ever and wishing you a most joyous New Year!
I missed the actual lunar eclipse, but my husband and I realized that something wonderful and mysterious was happening as we gazed at the hazy halo surrounding the moon in the open sky as we left our daughter's home in the late evening. We won't be on earth the next time it happens--that seems kind of strange to consider!

Blessed holidays

Rustique Gal said...

Zuzana,
I so feel the same about Christmases past. How I felt so happy on that day!
Not just presents, but loving people surrounding me and showing in so many ways how they cared. Now I try to carry on that feeling too. I swear I channel Grandma L at this time of year. I just found her cookbook with some recipes we have been talking about. Next year....!
Happy new year, friend!
