Well, I think that’s about enough “trimmings.” Just want to leave you for the day with this image (one of several Civil War Christmas images in the larger collection of images from Harpers Weekly available at The Civil War). While it fits well with the Civil War theme of this blog, I think it says a great deal more and carries forward to today. While we enjoy the comfort of family, friends, home and food, let’s not forget those who make many sacrifices to make our happiness here, back at home, possible. God Bless them and keep them safe!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas Eve!
