Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving think home and family, all sharing in the blessings. Send your imagination over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house for some warm, cozy stuff to celebrate the season. Offer greetings to a friend, or collect some original images. And, whatever else you may do, pause a few moments and.. Give Thanks.

PLAY: Let There Be Peace On EathSo once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.

Merry Christmas

  

Imagination reigns here. Snow rests on eave and sill. Carols fill the frosty air. Inside our place it's warm and cozy. Why not and look around a bit? Hopefully you'll find something new to use for your Christmas celebrations and e-correspondence. Let us know if you need help. Otherwise, feel free to enjoy at your leisure.

  

PLAY: Do You Hear What I Hear?"I heard the bells, on Christmas Day,
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

Happy Valentine's Day

It's true - Hearts and flowers are in year round. So just in case you have a bit of trouble letting others know your feelings, there's sure to be something here to help you out. Won't you step in and have a look around?

We celebrate love and friendship each and every day around here. Some folks say we "wear our heart on our sleeve." The term originated in the Middle Ages when young men and women drew names (written on a paper heart, of course) from a bowl to see who their Valentines would be. They would then wear the name pinned on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.

Life is to be fortified by many friendships.
     To love, and to be loved is the great happiness of existence.

Happy St. Paddy's Day

The legendary proprietors of St. Paddy's (Est. 1727) live at the top of Church Street hill in ole Dublin town. Their shop is just a step across the way from their cottage. Often cloudy days bring reported sightings of a sparkling rainbow bridging the gap between the two buildings.  Legend has it the McLean boys send their art and greetings over to the shop via that rainbow. But then legend has it the McLean's aren't your everyday artisans either!

Whatever the case may be, St. Paddy's shop is chock full of great stuff to use in celebration of THE day. Be sure and take some time during your stay in the Village to look around.

All Hallows Eve

Nothin' horrible here!

 Near the outskirts of Holiday Village, just at the bottom of Main Street, stands the farm house of Broomhilda McTaggart. It's a beautiful old Victorian house, but all the children think it's a little *spooky*. Maybe it's because every year, early in October ol' Miss McTaggart harvests her pumpkin patch, carves some jack'o'lanterns and brightens up the place for Autumn.

PLAY: Spooks!If you're looking for stuff to brighten up your Harvest Festival... stop by Broomhilda's and have a look around. She's fixed up some pumpkins, some spooks, a few cute critters, and even a story or two.

Enjoy...and be safe!
