Margaret Sharrow's Lampeter Lantern Festival photos

All photos copyright Margaret Sharrow, 2010

A child's Christmas in Wales took the form of a lantern festival, to celebrate Lampeter's status as a Transition Town. The children had made lanterns representing windmills, water wheels, the sun, the earth, a giant sunflower, etc. It was part of Lampeter's Christmas festival on 10 December 2010, with many businesses opening late offering mince pies, and one of the banks even serving up drams of whiskey (standing room only there!)

No snow then but it's looking mighty festive now, with six inches falling overnight / this morning. Valiant hand loading of deliveries to one of the supermarkets, a wifi-enabled cafe bravely open...

Best holiday wishes to all my blog readers, and thank you for looking at my pages so often this past year. I hope to bring you loads more news and reviews in the new year (and hopefully before then, too!) So wishing you all joyful experiences this holiday season... merry Christmas, Nadolig llawen, joyeux Noel, feliz Navidad, and best wishes too in Danish, Korean, Russian, Chinese, Faroese, Dutch, German, Italian, Armenian, Swedish, Hebrew and all the other languages you speak...
