Yesterday the Hook & Scumble household spent most of the day "Decking the Halls," and so our little cottage is looking a little more festive now.
We also paid a visit here,
One of the local Churches in the Town.
For the past few years this Chrurch has held a very lovely Christmas Tree Festival.
The Eldest Hook & Scumbler was particuarly keen to go as she had contributed to two of the trees in the festival, and the youngest Hook & Scumbler was super excited to see all the Trees decorated and looking very Christmassy indeed.
This was one of my favourites...it's mounted in a tuba and was decorated by one of the local brass bands - very ingenious.
The Festival concluded with a Christingle Service,
This is the one that made it home....
with it's 4 decorated prongs of fruits & sweets representing the 4 seasons and the fruit of the earth,
I'm afraid to say that the others were devoured either during the service or directly en- route home !
