Christmas Begins!

This weekend was the Point Roberts Christmas Craft Fair.  Along with the general Canadian need for packages, gas, and dairy/poultry goods, the border situation became only more awful with terrible lineups, I am told.  I wasn't going outside the country this weekend, however, because I was raising money for the library selling donated handmade goods to one and all.

The Community Center was unusually well decorated: many, many silver balls hanging from the ceiling of the hallway on long ribbons, and a general profusion of  red and green decorations, interspersed with many white features bringing out the Icelandic Christmas theme.

Lots of people buying; lots of things to buy; lots of edibles; lots of musical performers (singers, guitarists, ensembles of various sorts, including a brass one).  And all in the service of saying welcome to the holidays of December.

Think good thoughts!  Give good will!  God Bless Us, Every One.  And if you are thinking of making a year-end donation to the library, keep up the good work.  And, next, actually write that check and drop it off at the library.  Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday...
