An Old Fashioned New England Christmas

"When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness."
~ Bob Hope

Yesterday my husband and I had the pleasure of going to the Walker Homestead’s

Old Fashioned New England Christmas by the Hearthside, hosted by Paul & Kris Casucci.

The fire was crackling, the hot cider was mulling, Christmas music was filling the air and Father Christmas was doing what he does best!

Among the special guests were Primitives by Maria, Storybook Author Mark Kimball Moulton,  Pied Potter Hamelin & Kulina Folkart and of course our beloved Father Christmas!
