We stop off at Caracoli for hot chocolate, coffee and snacks. The coffee shop has such a festive feel. It was a warm Christmas Eve - just look at those tables set outside.
The nativity scene close to the Christmas tree in the square is always made by children from the local primary school.
As dusk begins to fall it is time for the follies to make our way home.
Christmas Eve continued with a meal and charades and then it was time to put out the stockings, milk and mince pie for Santa - not forgetting the carrot for Rudolf. Even though the youngest Folly is now 9 there is never any suggestion that we omit such traditions. I have to admit that now the Follies are getting older the chance to stay in bed until 7.30am is very welcome, but even teenagers cannot contain their excitement longer than this.
