Ghosts of Christmas past

In the blink of a snow-filled eye Diane Lindsay pictures her home’s previous occupants and community of old enjoying all the joys of the season…

I can’t remember last time it snowed at Christmas, perhaps only once in the years I’ve lived in this small Warwickshire village. I love winter, but when the white stuff falls, it really is magical like living in a Christmas card. You know, one of those Georgian scenes with cheery coachmen and rosy-cheeked urchins carolling whilst last minute shoppers stride home, she glowing under her poke bonnet, he bearing a hefty goose over one shoulder. Our parish council switches on Christmas lights on 1 December, encouraging us with a Christmas Fayre to festively light up our homes at the same time. So the best bits of the season, the lights, the anticipation and the banishment of the dark gloriously lasts until Epiphany. I love it.
