Beneath the Tree


I hope that this Christmas you experience the enchantment of standing alone by candlelight before a tree, of medieval carols more sombre and haunting than modern ones, of quiet moments of reflection as you gaze into a warming fire, of the beauty of steam rising from a cup of hot chocolate or spiced mulled wine, of the same sense of unquestioned magic that the day inspired in early childhood, and of true love for those you share the holiday with.
