Christmas is one of the most joyous times of the year. On this day, chestnuts are roasting on an open fire, tall pine trees beautifully decorated with shiny baubles and tinsel are put up around town, colourful lights twinkle through the night, cheery snowmen greet you with smiles along the streets, grazing reindeer provide picture-perfect moments, and jolly old Santa Claus will soon be making his debut.

During this time of year as well as throughout the whole month of December, we celebrate love, faith, miracles, hope and generosity.
