Magical Christmas Wishes 2014

I will have posts for you both tomorrow on Christmas Eve, and on Christmas Day, but I thought I wanted to use tonight’s post to send my “official” seasonal greeting to everyone, and share one of the most magical Christmas images I know, left unaltered (click on the image to go to the original and download it):
