I enjoy the other parts of Christmas just for the fun and joy of it. In my Christmas boxes, bins and tins are lots of decoration items. Boy! I have a vast array of fun things. I have enjoyed collecting Santa Claus figures over the years. They range from a tiny Santa doing handstands, or one barrelling down the slopes on skis to a tall Santa dressed as a woodsman with a toggle button jacket and burlap gift sack. I just enjoy looking at all the different features of each one.

I also have a wonderful and delightful collection of snowmen figures. They range from a miniscule clay snowman covered with a glittery finish to a tall resin snowman holding garden implements. There are soft sculptures, metal, wood, clay . . . all kinds. I even have "Irish Snow People" which includes one with sheer green angel wings and another wearing a green Irish cloak. This pair was made for us by a fellow traveler on a tour in Ireland several years ago. Again, I just enjoy handling them, looking at the faces, admiring the different features. My snowman collection stays out through January!!
