G ~ The A-Z of Christmas
Good morning Christmas lovin friends. Today I am doing the letter G.
Glad Tidings, gingerbread, gold, frankincense, myrrh, and good will toward men.
Gingerbread cookies and houses are a long time favourite at Christmastime. When my boys were growing up I made gingerbread boys every year. I still enjoy them although I no longer bake them. They are such charming cookies!
These days, I have a ceramic Gingerbread House which I purchased at Hallmark a few years ago. It has wonderful gumdrops on it which light up and keep time to the music that plays when you ring the doorbell. It plays a most delightful rendition of The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy.
My grandchildren love it and they take turns ringing the door bell! The past couple of years I have also been making a gumdrop tree which stands next to the Gingerbread House. The children take the tree home with them after their visit to enjoy the treats.
I also enjoy old fashioned Gingerbread cake served with apple sauce, whipped cream, or a wonderful vinegar sauce which was my grandmother's recipe. Yes, Vinegar Sauce; and it's delicious!
Welcome to my Christmas blog! This is a blog about all things Christmasy and the magic that this special season evokes. Just like a Christmas pudding is a rich mixture of wonderful ingredients, so my blog is a mixture of sorts; collections, stories, poems, photos, and recipes, etc.
Please come in and make yourself comfortable. I hope you will join me for a mug of hot apple cider and Gingerbread. I believe Christmas is the most magical time of the year; a special time which should dwell in your heart all year round.
The sights and sounds of the season have a way of making one's heart glad and I hope you will find your visit here pleasant, merry, and bright. The Lord bless you!

Christmas is an event that one carries in one's heart, not just one day a year, but all year round.
I live a happy life in Green Gables country with my sweet hubby who is a retired pastor. We have three wonderful sons and five darling grandchildren. I love being a home maker and I thrive on bringing beauty and comfort into my home for my family and friends to enjoy. Life is made even richer by my faith in God who has taught me, "The joy of the Lord is my strength." I am so happy you have stopped by and I welcome you through my yellow door.
