Neighborly Christmas

When we moved into our new home just over 2 years ago, and the first Christmas season was upon us in our new neighborhood, we were surprised at the outpouring of gifts from the neighbors on the street. That made us feel welcome!
I think that's a downright nice neighborly tradition!
I made Christmas boots / stockings out of felt that hold a bag of microwave popcorn and candycanes to take around the street this year. There are 14 houses on our road.
And I doodled this, but didn't quite fit 14 houses around the circle!
May your home fires burn warm this season!

It is wonderful to have good neighbors, we have a farm on each side of us and we are good friends.
We do a little exchange also, but yours is so sweet.
Have a Joy filled Holiday...Hugs, Mary
