Jacquie Lawson's ecard community. (I forget what the subscription costs. ) For the past three years the Jacquie Lawson folks across the pond have offered a digital Advent Calendar. Download it once and enjoy it for 25 days. Last year, the calendar took us to London where we enjoyed the sights. This year, we visited an "Alpine" village. But, best of all, we all got the same cottage living room where we could each decorate the tree, design a wreath and hang stockings. Here is a photo of my cottage.
As the real world goes crazy, I retreat into this safe digital haven where everything is pretty, peaceful and joyous. And I think of the friends who might be hanging their stockings in their own digital cottages and it gives me relief and calm. Thanks, Jacquie and your team of artists and techies, for creating such a lovely diversion.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Wonderful Winter to everyone who stops by this blog and to all their loved ones.
