Monochrome Monday ~ Nat King Cole

chestnuts for the spinner of Christmas fireside tales
for fairy tales that can come true

One of the things I remember about working in the City of London at Christmastime is the sweet smell of chestnuts being roasted by the cockney coster mongers.  Chestnuts roasting on an open fire indeed…..

We can’t have the Christmas we deserve.

But we deserve the Merry Christmases in our memories.
