a parade welcoming the holiday season

Sunday evening was the Christmas 'parade' in the village. It is a very old custom, so we thought we would join Emma's school this year and walk. Villagers followed behind Santa through the village centre and at the Village Hall, everyone sang old English carols (luckily they were illuminated on the hall!)
Michaela, as a former student, carried the Southfield tree.
Emma walked with her friend, Rebecca.

We stayed until we were all frozen.
