The dark time of the year is also one of the most festive. The fairies are busy readying their little homes to prepare for all the happy visits from friends and family ... and Santa Claus of course. After all, Santa wouldn't miss this chance to party with his kinfolk!
Most of us have some cherished decorations that we lovingly bring out and display for the whole Yuletide season. It's nice to bring in some of Mother Nature's evergreen decorations too such as a pine, holly and cedar boughs to warm up and brighten our homes which remind us that the trees are only sleeping and life is an everlasting cycle.
A lot of fairies have small homes and so it may seem silly to have dishes with Christmas motifs that can only be used once a year. While a full set of dishes might cramp their style (or storage spaces!), a single decorative serving plate or tray is a very pretty accent to set out with some cookies, nuts, or other Christmas fare. The fairies have at least one such plate in their homes, stocked with yummy treats to welcome anyone who might stop by ... especially the biggest elf of all - Santa!
