Advent Heroine - Babushka

For Xmas Eve, a special heroine - Babushka - from the old Russian Christmas story. Babushka was too busy to heed the call to follow the new born King, the Christ child, as she had housework to do. When at last she's finished, she gathers up the toys in her cupboard (she had a baby who had died) and follows him but never quite catches up. As she goes on her way each Xmas Eve, she leaves a toy for every child on her way to find the Baby Jesus.

    Merry Christmas to all our Pocketeers - both writers and readers - and best wishes for a Happy and Successful New Year 2013.

  1. What an excellent choice for Christmas Eve, Carol!
    We didn't know about the housework or the baby. What a lot of things we've learnt from these Advent Heroines.
    Thank you for your Christmas and New Year wishes. May we send ours to you and everyone.
