Some people are born to entertain.  They have those huge personalities that draw others to them and know exactly how to make each guest feel equally important and special.  For those people who would like to be experts at entertaining but don’t have the natural born skill, small gatherings are the perfect way to practice to work towards a big to-do.

7 Days of Christmas

Posted by Hampshire Pewter on 12/10/2014
‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ sounds a jolly carol without hinting that it was actually a catechetical device written by the Jesuits in the 16th century as a means of (secret) instruction of the basic teachings of the Catholic faith. Outward, and even private worship, was banned under the reign of Henry VIII until Elizabeth I. It was not uncommon at the time for homes to be raided since priests used to secretly baptize a child or give a dying person the Last Rites. So the faithful, especially the children, who are learning Christian values are safe from persecution, ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ was popularized.
