Today’s pleasure is to do with Christmas itself and it’s the pleasure of Christmas trees. Caistor is one of the many churches and chapels all over the country holding Christmas tree festivals this weekend so I trundled up the hill and called in.
There were over thirty trees displayed, all of which had been sponsored by local people or businesses or groups and each of which was individually decorated. One of my favourites was decorated by the local chimney sweep who had displayed a fine choice of entry points for Santa.
The schools and kindergartens had done their bit, usually with lovely decorations made by the children.
Charities too had decorated trees including this one by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution which has a lively fundraising group here in Caistor.
