Hello friends and welcome to another A-Z of Christmas. Today we are doing the letter F...
Father Christmas, family, fruitcake, fudge, frosty walks.
The central figure of most secular celebrations of Christmas is a jolly fellow who delivers presents to well behaved children on Christmas Eve.
He goes by several names; Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, among others. In England, this jolly gent is known as Father Christmas.
I really like this figurine and I find it very endearing. Father Christmas kneeling in worship before the Saviour.
Years ago, I had made a friend of mine a figurine very much like this one. I wish I had made myself one too because I think it says it all.
Every Christmas, I make fruitcake and fudge among other things. This year, I will make both a dark and a sultana cake. My middle son and his wife as well as myself, prefer the dark cake, whereas the rest of my family prefers the sultana.
This is my Sultana cake which is my mother's recipe. It is a wonderful light and buttery cake made with a delectable mixture of fruit and flavourings. Yum!
What about you? Do you make a special cake for the holidays?
I am linking this post with Natasha for her 12 Days of Christmas Party.
