Merry Christmas From der Alte Fritz

The official Christmas Tree of Hesse Seewald

Mrs. Fritz, Princess Lelia Jane and der Alte Fritz wish all of my blog readers a Merry Christmas with your family and friends and a happy and successful 2020.

While Christmas is the primary Christian religious holiday, I think that Christmas represents so much more than that. It is the spirit of giving and helping others, of being polite to others, and of being with close family and friends for the holiday season.

The other day Lelia Jane said to me, "Dad, you know what I like best about Christmas?"

" No" I replied.

"I like giving presents more than I do receiving them. I like to see people's expressions when they open their packages and gifts." she said.

I couldn't put it any better than that.

Merry Christmas everyone!

A few Napoleonic ornaments are tucked away in the branches.
