The wonder of Christmas

THE VERY SPECIAL DAY
There was a very special magic in the air when I was young,
I trembled in my bed wondering, would He come in the night!
You may also want to watch:
awaking early in the morning searching the end of my bed.
rousing my Mum and Dad, shouting with excited joy.

- 2 Budleigh couple’s book detailing their South American adventures

- 4 Mrs B marks 10 years with All Saints Pre-school
- 5 Exmouth’s Imperial Hotel set to reopen
- 6 Plenty of case work picked up on campaign trail, but I'm happy to help

Tumbling down the stairs to a glistening, festooned tree
laden with gaily wrapped parcels shining with white frost.
Now, though grown older, I feel that magic still.
It is present in the velvet, starry, moonlit night.
I hear it in the carols on the village green,
it surrounds me in the shining, candle-lit church
where the thundering organ bursts forth in mighty voice.
Our thoughts upon this day encompass all our friends
and look towards our Lord's birth so long ago
so we cast aside our cares and share with you
A very Happy Christmas
June and Bruce
