    A little Christmas fable to end my year of 52 Ancestors. Although the relationship to the Saint is tenuous, the story does involve ancestors (and others).

    I’m curious what is happening next week, since it is still December and the 52 Challenge for 2014 is officially ended. I will take a look and see you next year. Happy New Year from me and my ancestors.
