Father and Mother Claus in the Barn


Father and Mme Claus in the Barn

It’s time for Father Christmas and Mme Claus to get ready to travel to visit all those people in the world who celebrate their Christmas and Yuletide festivities in January.

They need to make sure that all the animals taken care of.
And, that the herbs in the drying shed are tied up and secured.

The faeries and pixies are helping. They carry the fairy lights and lanterns with organic beeswax candles.
And, play music on their pipes, flutes, guitars, and drums.

As they’ve often said, with the Fae, nothing gets done without a little music.

And, every time, Father and Mother shake with laughter.

“I am glad to hear it,” they chuckle.

It’s nice to see all the animals and fairy folk helping out and getting along.

(Their cozy house can be seen just behind Father’s shoulder, past the door, under the Northern Lights, next to Wind Turbines, and Solar Panels, beside the paddock.)
