PAGAN OFFERING

At last our offering to the Germanic tree spirits is in place, although George (Thing 3) was scared as I brought it in through the door tonight. However, he cheered up as he and his brothers gathered round to decorate the Christmas tree. I only put on one decoration, which was my grandmothers and then retreat growling behind the newspaper



In time honoured tradition the bulbs have blown twice and the tree is plunged into darkness, so next year we are going get some German candlesticks to hang on the tree from our Tuetonic chum Simone, who runs a Christmas stall at the Bath market.

I also got this through the post from Steve Weston Soldiers. Steve has been looking out for it for a while so I was pleased when he let me know it was in stock

Although really Burnside Bridge from the Battle of Antietam, it will make a good terrain piece for my ECW project.

A Merry Christmas to you all.
