It is hard to believe that the year is drawing to a close and that Christmas is merely weeks away. Thankfully, recollections from the past warm the chill of December.

Nestor, the stop-motion animated film of 1977 is one of those very special memories. The brave little donkey, with the very long ears and gentle eyes, who found his calling carrying Mary safely to Bethlehem. 

I wonder now about the true-to-life donkey so many years ago. An unlikely hero in the events that led to the day we now celebrate. Following his path, and guided by the heavens, he became a symbol of hope and faith and love.

Over the past year we have been collecting donations in support of two Ontario donkey sanctuaries. We have been so touched by the generosity of you, our customers. On behalf of the donkeys, we thank you so very much.

Merry Christmas!
