25th December - Christmas Day

My second quote was remembering whose birthday we celebrate today and the reason why Christians do celebrate his birth

“On Jesus’ birth a new light shone out in the darkness then, and now that light is firmly established in Heaven.
Anyone on earth who sets out on a journey in search of God will be lead by this light – 
the light shines for everyman who walks in darkness.”  ~  Delia Smith (A feast for Advent)

We went to St Luke's Maidstone to our vicar's new church after he and his family left Hastings in September.
 The white candle in the middle of the advent ring was lit to represent Jesus' birth bringing light to the world
As we opened our room door to go to breakfast we found Secret Santa had visited us...which family was that? We had a clue but got it wrong LOL!!

 Opening presents during the day at different times

Christmas lunch 

Our entertainment nightly was Robert Harberman
