Your only hope of seeing Santa is to stay awake all night on Christmas Eve,
but then if he knows you're awake, he may not visit your house!
Adults have the best chance, so if you want to get some sneaky photos of him,
be prepared for a long await in the semi-darkness, which I was.
The sun wasn't long up, when I saw him leaving his sleigh and those poor tired reindeer,
but I wasn't quick enough with my camera. I waited a whole hour and still no sign of him. Someone said he was seen leaving the Beechwood area, and that he heard he was gone into Ann Nolan's for a drink of some kind! I had enough of the waiting and headed home to bed. I noticed he left his hat in the sleigh; possibly due to the very mild weather!
If you got any presents, then you must have been good throughout the past year,
so remain as well-behaved during 2017 for more surprises next Christmas!
Hand-knitted crib figures, depicting the birth of Christ,
in the library window;
all hand-made locally.
DO make a trip to see this library display,
and a further two windows to delight young and old!
. . . and now most people are awaiting 7.30pm Mass on Christmas Eve and two Christmas Day Masses @ 9.00 am and 11.00 am, all in St. Patrick's Church,
also 9.30 am Christmas Day Service in Holy Trinity Church.
. . . and we're not forgetting a certain gentleman supposed to be coming this way tonight
in a sleigh, pulled by reindeer,
with presents for all good children in the area!
