When our hall comes alive way out here …

When locals line-up for burgers and beer…

Who are then drawn inside to applaud and to cheer…

xmastree_4686 eYoung performers dancing their little hearts out

xmastree_4695 eWho do anything for a laugh and a shout…

Even Santa arrives, with presents for all…

xmastree_4871 eBut it’s kids who are centre stage, all standing tall…

xmastree_4880 eAs long as Dad’s looking, they give it their all...

    Wishing all your blogger friends and your family all the very best for a wonderful Christmas – now lets hope for that “stuff” in good moderation from above, eh?
    That would make Christmas and the start of 2014 perfect.

  4. There is something very special about gatherings at country halls. For such a remote place, it looks like a good turn up.
