  1. Merry Christmas Sharon!

    Thanks for those links, I too love history and Christmas! In fact my cats really love it too as they’ve knocked down our Christmas tree several times now, all the fun!

    I thought you may like this link also! It’s Chatsworth’s yearly Christmas decorations posted on youtube in November.

    Also, Chatsworth has their own site but it looks like they have only so far posted 4 vids.

    Have a wonderful season!

    Hugs,
    Kathy

I love to hear from you!
