AYLI (DT) Favourite Christmas Carol/Song

Hello peeps, how are your festive preparations going?  Mine are in their usual state of chaos I'm afraid.  I'm never sure how Christmas manages to sneak up on me every year like this.

Anyhoo, it's a new challenge from AS YOU LIKE IT today and the theme is Favourite Christmas Carol or Song.

For me it's a song rather than a carol, and it is a bittersweet one this year as Greg Lake has just passed away.  "I Believe In Father Christmas".  I have loved this ever since it was released, and the first hearing of it always reminds me of how close to Christmas we are.  The words are quite thought provoking.


High Hopes large Stackable Santa stamp
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Love the chevrons on the bottom. I thought that it was that pergamano stuff (maybe not the right name). Santa looks a little frazzled too so you are in good company.

This year's I'm grooving on Ronnie James Dio's version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
