‘Go to the park,’ said my wife, ‘someone’s leaving Christmas angels on the benches for people to find!’ So down I went and sure enough I saw one and took a photo. I walked about looking for more but they’d all been taken. Then I saw someone coming my way with a couple of large bags.‘Are you the angel lady?’ She laughed and said ‘Yes, would you like one?’ So I took an angel home. Angel means messenger and the message is on the label.
The perceptive song was written by Ray Noble in 1932, and after finding the angel with the message I thought of it in a quite different light.
If you go to http://www.christmasangel.net#xmasangels you’ll find, among other information, how to knit an angel. Perhaps even be one.
