My name is Fiona and I live in Golberdon. We are collecting for Gables Dogs and Cats home to help them over the Christmas period, unfortunately a time in which they see their numbers increase dramatically.
As we move into the Christmas season once again our thoughts are likely to turn to Christmas trees, decorations, food, presents and (perhaps) being with the family. Christmas is a time of celebration, whether you are religious or not, a time of special things even for those working on a tight budget. Many will say it’s a time mainly for the children, and there can be truth in this when you see the face of a child that is lit up by the excitement and wonder of it all. But I think as you get older, perhaps slowing down a bit, you begin to savour the specialness in a different way – not outright excitement, but a sense of quiet delight, particularly if friends and family are gathered round.
