A Christmas nativity at Migvie


There's nothing like a carol concert to make you feel Christmas-y, and yesterday was one of the best; the children from Logie Coldstone school came up the icy path to Migvie church to sing and dance and make merry. It's six months since we got married there, when the long summer days made December nights seem very distant; and the weeks have sped along too quickly since then, turning all at once into dark midwinter. But inside the church, there was much good cheer, with a warm message from the minister who married us (lovely Mr Ribbons), followed by mince pies, Scottish shortbread, and mulled winter Pimms for the grownups.
I'm now contemplating the return to London, and the rush to finish the March issue before Christmas Eve. Meanwhile, here's a link to the online piece I wrote for Bazaar about the Chanel show in Edinburgh earlier this month.

I love carol singing even though I am not Christian. I remember wonderful carols by Candlelight at Zoo Lake in Johannesburg and somehow sitting in the open with a lighted candle listening to carols is very special. I wish you and Philip a blessed Christmas and let's hope that 2013 will be a wonderful year full of Harpers , books and inspiration and may there be peace on earth !!!!

It sounds perfectly lovely. Nativity plays and carols in general, always leave me with a huge lump in my throat. Mr Ribbons sounds like a Dickensian character, fabulous name! Have a wonderful Christmas, Justine, and all the very best for the coming year.
