Christmas Scavenger Hunt 21st December

Father Christmas


As one who follows a Druid path, today being the Winter Solstice is an important one for me. I'm a lover of the woods and the Yule evergreens, so this rather more unusual depiction of Father Christmas with his green coat and holly wreath feels more authentic to me. We have the Victorians to thank for the red coat....prior to this FC was depicted in anything from green through to brown or even blue! The rather scary almost Krampus type figure in black is actually the Mythago drummer and he's a lovely chap behind the mask!

  1. I always thought Father Christmas was the man of the woods too.

  4. I'm a lover of woods and evergreens too Aril and I always like to see Father Christmas dressed in green. If I don't get back to see you before Christmas I hope you have a lovely time. Barbara x
