Advent Calendar 2016: Day 6


Good Morning! Today, check out this beautiful illustration from Old Christmas: From the Sketchbook of Washington Iriving. The accompanying quote on page 123 reads: 

"Never did Christmas board display a more goodly and gracious assemblage of countenances: those who were not handsome, were, at least, happy; and happiness is a rare improver of your hard-favoured visage." 

Haha!


Have a wonderful day, everyone!
