“I have created this Father Christmas just for you. I have stirred in some memory and tradition, too.
I’ve mixed in old toys for good little boys and jewels and curls for good little girls.
He is one of a kind, made with love and great pleasure. He seeks a warm home where he’ll be held as a treasure.” Kay Burkhart.

Three Irish Blessings:
May you live a long life, full of gladness and health, with a pocket full of gold be the least of your wealth. May the dreams you hold dearest, be those which come true, the kindness you spread keep returning to you.
