 On Saturday evening, Best Beloved and I attended a Traditions Evening, at the home of friends. These events have become a popular addition to the social round, in our extended group of friends. Different people take turns in showing how to do a Yule-related craft. I elected to demonstrate how to make a willow wreath, and then help folk make one. Gathering the 'ingredients' was an excuse for bringing home all sorts of greenery in the preceding week.
 I was surprised, and delighted, at the number of guests who had a go. On the whole, the children were much quicker at understanding the 'how to', than the adults.  Tilly ( above) decided hers was best worn as a crown!
About ten decorated wreaths made their way home with their creators at the end of the evening....and one stayed with the hosts.
