Got up this morning and miraculously I couldn't see any damage done to the dwellings or the out buildings and livestock housing. Just a few beef nut bags were blowing about in the haggard.
We went to Aldi the other day and bought two heart shaped wreaths for the graves of my parents, my dad's parents, great grandparents and my father's brother's and sisters and his aunt who emigrated to America to work in a big house and retired back in Ireland.. My grandmother had 3 miscarriages, 7 children and 3 survived. That was back in the 1930's when life was really tough.
I like the wreaths because they are heart shaped. The word wreath comes form the old English word : Wraeth. It means to twist. Wreaths are a band of foliage or flowers intertwined into a ring and placed on a grave or memorial. Soon we will go and crucify ourselves and visit the graves and place the wreaths on the graves nearer to Christmas. Might even go Christmas day. Life is short and Christmas is never the same when you lose your loved one's, is it?
At least United are on the box on Boxing/Stephens Day.
Do you know why it's called Boxing Day?
