.. day comes in the springtime ..

A day comes in the springtime
When Earth puts forth her powers,
Casts off the bonds of winter
And lights him hence with flowers…
~Dora Read Goodale, “The Chorus,” in Country Life in America:
A Magazine for the Home-maker, the Vacation-seeker, the Gardener,
the Farmer, the Nature-teacher, the Naturalist

Is wholesome even for the King.

.. let every day be Christmas ..

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Norman Wesley Brooks

The Arcade‘s December round ends in just a few short days.  There are so many cute and fun creations to be found so if you haven’t gotten all the items you wanted, head over now so you can load up before it is gone.
