Each candle was a gift from a sweet family member. The evergreen and the holly branch were cut from the yard. The soft glowing light triggers memories of many long ago Christmas times and brings to mind Elvis Presley singing Holly Leaves and Christmas Trees…♥ (listen below)

Somewhere in, in the distant night
I hear Christmas bells.
The gentle snow keeps falling down on people
Who are homeward bound.
That’s the way it’s always been
The circle never really ends.
Christmas seems to come and go,
Home’s a place that I don’t know.
Holly leaves and Christmas trees,
It’s that time of year.
Lights aglow and mistletoe
Don’t mean a thing if you’re not here.
As I walk, walk this lonely street,
The sound of snow beneath my feet,
I’ll think of how, how it used to be.
Holly leaves and Christmas trees
Use to mean so much to me…
