Potz has dressed up as the Christmas Carols “Ghost Of Christmas Present.”
ln his hand he carries a cornucopia torch to light the way, and behind him you’ll find a small feast of fruits, each filled with juices sweet and delicious. On his head a holly wreath with shining icicles.
This piece is a representation of what Charles Dickens wanted to reveal and keep in the hearts of his readers…”Peace on Earth and goodwill to man!”
The holiday seasons can keep us so busy, tossing us into the commercial world of Black Fridays chaos, madding traffic patterns, and last minute Christmas crunches. So much so that we forget these gentle story reminders. Not just Dickens Christmas Carol, but other traditional stories, such as,The Gift of the Magi, The Elves and the Shoemaker, The Night Before Christmas, The Nutcracker and my favorite The Velveteen Rabbit. Yes, set yourself down, take a breath, and turn the page of a beautiful holiday story that will re-energize your mind and heart into what the spirit of Christmas truly means to you.
I know that we all have the “Spirit of Christmas Present” in us. Love, compassion and generosity are not lost, these feelings remain in each and everyone. Let this be the year you are “Present!”
