Here follows some photos of both the Christingle service and festivities from today, avec cheeky captions.
Morn consisted of last minute chores, endless wrapping, and house clearing.
The wrapping got to me

Few Sundays back was my church's 'Carols by Candlelight', a service I particularly cherish being involved in every year; the 'Christingle' is one I love to be in the audience for.
|Although it's touch and go to whether the sun makes an appearance at all this time of year, I found|
a beautiful sunset outside church.

Prayer Quote ' I pray for health, and meditation..' , oops.

Turned out quite bad-disney-esc. In my opinion.

|The Christingle significance|
Orange - The World
Coctail sticks - 4 poles of the earth
Rasins/sweets - Fruits of the world
Tin foil - Gods holyness/elf and safety
Red Ribbon - Blood of Christ
Candle - Jesus is the light of the world
My love goes out to everyone, anywhere in the world this Christmas
|Where'd the path go?|
and as a side note:
I hope that last nights storm in the UK hasn't affected yours.
