Just Like the Ones I Used to Know | December 14, 2015
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”

Hold on tight if your riding with Charity.
“And therefore, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that Christmas has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!”
Off to hunt for the perfect tree.

I don’t know what really is going on here but I think Rachel must have just told Charity what she is getting for Christmas.
Thanks for all the perfect Christmas memories, Dad and Mum.
“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us!”
