Oh boy! We're not even a week into December and already I'm a day behind with my Advent postings!!!
Day 6 - The Christmas Tree Festival
joining in with Julie's Scrapbook Advent Calendar
I'd never heard of a Christmas Tree Festival before until I saw Sue's blog post about the one she visited in Stowmarket and luckily as I was driving through Danbury last week I saw a sign about one being held at the local church. There were about a dozen trees are wonderfully decorated by different groups within the Danbury community.
These three trees were decorated by the other churches within the village.
The quilted ornaments were beautifully made.
Tomas wanted to write a prayer and add it to the Prayer Tree
and there was even time to speak to Father Christmas.
Tomas's favourite tree was the big tree but I don't think this was actually part of the festival.
It was getting dark as we left and it was lovely to see the warm glow of the lights inside the church as well as the twinkling tree.
It was lovely way to spend an hour and I would definitely love to go again next year.
Does your local church hold a Christmas Tree Festival?
Day 6 of Brenda's Restoring your Joy of Christmas is all about "Just Being".
It's so easy to try and cram to much in during this Christmas period, whether it's making gifts, going out, cooking or shopping. This year I have purposefully not committed to too much sewing. (although I'm still busy and still running out of time!) Last year I was burning the midnight oil trying to finish orders right up until a few days before Christmas and it was exhausting. So this year I'm "just being" a little bit more and trying not to stress too much if things don't get done.
