Merry Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas to all my lovely, bookish friends! 
Wishing relaxation and beauty to all!

 Christmas morning broke on a beautiful white world. It had been a very mild December and people had looked forward to a green Christmas; but just enough snow fell softly in the night to transfigure Avonlea. Anne peeped out from her frosted gable window with delighted eyes. The firs in the Haunted Wood were all feathery and wonderful; the birches and wild cherry trees were outlined in pearl; the plowed fields were stretches of snowy dimples; and there was a crisp tang in the air that was glorious. Anne ran downstairs singing until her voice re-echoed through Green Gables. “Merry Christmas, Marilla! Merry Christmas, Matthew! Isn’t it a lovely Christmas? 
 ~~ Anne of Green Gables

  2. A very Merry Christmas to you too! I love Christmas in Avonlea. I had to check - I was pretty sure this was the Christmas of the puffed sleeves, but not absolutely certain.
