I think in the hustle and bustle of a materialistic identikit Christmas, it is quite lovely to gather some fresh greenery, and make your own decorations.
When I got the the park near some woodland, I discovered that the ivy had already been cut down, and left there.
My brother reminded me of St Isidore, who would have his field plowed by angels so he could get to daily Mass.
How cool is that?
Plus the decorations are very festive too.
