My Twelve Days of Christmas #1

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree

The Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. The Twelve Days have been celebrated in Europe since before the middle ages and were a time of celebration. I may not have a partridge or a pear tree, but I have selected 12 photos from December / January to get me through this period.

“I saw three ships come sailing in…”

I wish all of you a very happy festive season in whichever way you choose to celebrate it. Thank you for your likes and comments this year, they are always very much appreciated.


(Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year)

    This reminds me a lot of last year’s display at Temple Newsam in Leeds. We didn’t get to one this year.
