GLORIA


Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy...


This beautiful Christmas angel has graced the top of our tree every year since 1975, when our second-grade son brought her home from school. Note the lovely golden ringlets, the gold belt, the lace-and-roses hem of her skirt, her shining golden wings, and her jeweled crown! (Then, if you can, notice her blue lips and her vampire teeth. This is part of what makes her so special.) Only a second-grade boy....

...on earth peace, good will to men!

Hey...My teacher never said it had to be a Christmas Angel. So, I went with the Angel of Death. What can I say...?

Who knew the Mormon Christmas tradition included Angel Vampires with Zombie Lips. Y'all are so inclusive. I'm inspired. : )
