Merry Christmas to you all, my dear blogger Friends! Joy to the World!
Joy to those who are celebrating with their families; joy to those who are with their friends; joy to the lonely. Blessings of peace and love to all.
I want to share some photographs I took in the last couple of days.
Waterford Winterval Festival is over, and tonight the city center is unusually quiet. This Express Train had been riding around every night since the end of November.
Even the hurricane Eva couldn’t stop it.
Riding the carousel was another fun thing you could do in Waterford.
The full moon is hiding in the clouds – the last day of the festival.
Santa Sleigh – the last ride of the season.
I know that this festival wasn’t anything breathtaking – just a regular retail business with a bit of tinsel added for festiveness. What I want to say is that Christmas time brings out the best in people, and this ‘best’ – sparkling eyes, smiles and happy laughter are a reflection of the joy within. It is what makes Christmas festivals special.
Let’s hope that this joy stays with us throughout the New Year and brightens ours days, softens our hearts and opens our minds for good things to enter.
Have a Happy Christmas!
Wishing you a belated merry christmas and a Happy New Year…better late than never, right? 😉
Thank you! Agree 🙂 Have a happy and fulfilling year you too!
There is nothing quite the Christmas and holiday spirit ~ and your photos are the perfect example of this joy, the slow-shutter of the carousel is how I feel over Christmas. I miss it already. I will never complain though, as I begin my holiday season mid-November with Diwali and end it mid-February this year with Chinese New Year…I can’t get too greedy 🙂 Cheers to the memories.
Isn’t it wonderful that the darkest time of the year is adorned with festivity around the globe! I was born and raised a cosmopolitan and agree with any holiday that makes people happy and softens their hearts. Tomorrow is Orthodox Christmas – another winter holiday I was reminded of on Facebook. You are lucky to have such extended holiday season 🙂
It is wonderful. The other day, the owner of the deli where I often go mentioned that they are Orthodox and there holiday is just beginning. 🙂 It is a time where hearts are softest, and we are most human. Cheers.
Beautiful pictures and very sweet and inspiring post. All the best!
Thank you for your kind comment. Wishing you a creative New Year!
The best kind of year. Thank you!
