1) It's snowing right now (just a dusting, though).

2) An official Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

3) Carol of the Bells as done by Manheim Steamroller.


I'll leave the questions intact:

1. Have you gotten any snow yet?
2. What is one or two items on your Christmas wish list?
3. What is your favorite Christmas song?

1. Yes, about two centimetrs (less than an inch). We had lots more but it melted away Sad

2. I don't really have one... Well, a new better job would be nice Smile

3. It's a Finnish Christmas song called 'En etsi valtaa loistoa', music by Jean Sibelius, lyrics by Zacharias Topelius (originally written in Swedish, the Finnish translation is usually performed in Finland). The title in Swedish is 'Giv mig ej glans , ej guld, ej prakt' (originally the title was 'Julpsalm') and in English 'I seek not power, glory or gold'.

It's very beautiful and solemn. This song is actually in the hymn books of the Lutheran Church of Finland (with a bit different translation), the Lutheran Church of Sweden Smile and probably also in Norway.

1. We actually had a little snow about a week ago, but it's almost 80 degrees here now. And this weekend is supposed to have the temps plummet again. In Houston???

2. Cash and anything of wolves or dragons.

3. My favorite Christmas song is It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. I also love Carol of the Bells and Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella...

Confused
It has been several years ago since we had snow on Christmas.
probably it's going to be drizzly again.

Thought I better bring this one up from the files just in case you were all decorated and have photos ready to share. Hey it could happen!
Do take a photo or three and share them with us soon.

The weather in Poland is currently more like October, so who knows, maybe we will get Christmas earlier this year Wink

Now we"re getting closer 'cause I think there's snow in the air as I got cold feet working in my office. Always a good sign to start singing:
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.
We even had the Snowman again this week as a request.

Twelve nights of sleep to go! Merry Christmas in advance, fellow SSTers!

1. Last week we had snow. It was fun for 2 days, then it became slush, and then it became icy and slippery.
2. I need a bedlight!
3. I always liked 'Good King Wenceslas'.

Here's something I pass around every year. Cat lovers will understand this one for sure!

Christmas/Yule Gift Wrapping Hints for Cat Owners

1. Clear large space on table for wrapping present.

2. Go to closet and collect bag in which present is contained, and shut door.

3. Open door and remove cat from closet.

4. Go to cupboard and retrieve rolls of wrapping paper.

5. Go back and remove cat from cupboard.

6. Go to drawer, and collect transparent sticky tape, ribbons, scissors, labels, etc. . .

7. Lay out presents and wrapping materials on table, to enable wrapping strategy to be formed.

8. Go back to drawer to get string, remove cat that has been in the drawer since last visit and collect string.

9. Remove present from bag.

10. Remove cat from bag.

11. Open box to check present, remove cat from box, replace present.

12. Lay out paper to enable cutting to size.

13. Try and smooth out paper, realize cat is underneath and remove cat.

14. Cut the paper to size, keeping the cutting line straight.

15. Throw away first sheet as cat chased the scissors, and tore the paper.

16. Cut second sheet of paper to size - by putting cat in the bag the present came in.

17. Place present on paper.

18. Lift up edges of paper to seal in present. Wonder why edges don't reach. Realize cat is between present and paper. Remove cat.

19. Place object on paper, to hold in place while tearing transparent sticky tape.

20. Spend 20 minutes carefully trying to remove transparent sticky tape from cat with pair of nail scissors.

21. Seal paper with sticky tape, making corners as neat as possible.

22. Look for roll of ribbon. Chase cat down hall in order to retrieve ribbon.

23. Try to wrap present with ribbon in a two-directional turn.

24. Re-roll ribbon and remove paper, which is now torn due to cat's enthusiastic ribbon chase.

25. Repeat steps 13-20 until you reach last sheet of paper.

26. Decide to skip steps 13-17 in order to save time and reduce risk of losing last sheet of paper. Retrieve old cardboard box that is the right size for sheet of paper.

27. Put present in box, and tie down with string.

28. Remove string, open box and remove cat.

29. Put all packing materials in bag with present and head for locked room.

30. Once inside lockable room, lock door and start to relay out paper and materials.

31. Remove cat from box, unlock door, put cat outside door, close and relock.

32. Repeat previous step as often as is necessary (until you can hear cat from outside door).

33. Lay out last sheet of paper. (This will be difficult in the small area of the toilet, but do your best)

34. Discover cat has already torn paper. Unlock door go out and hunt through various cupboards, looking for sheet of last year's paper. Remember that you haven't got any left because cat helped with this last year as well.

35. Return to lockable room, lock door, and sit on toilet and try to make torn sheet of paper look presentable.

36. Seal box, wrap with paper and repair by very carefully sealing with sticky tape. Tie up with ribbon and decorate with bows to hide worst areas.

37. Label. Sit back and admire your handiwork, congratulate yourself on completing a difficult job.

38. Unlock door, and go to kitchen to make drink and feed cat.

39. Spend 15 minutes looking for cat until coming to obvious conclusion.

40. Unwrap present, untie box and remove cat.

41. Go to store and buy a gift bag.

(I think the gift bag is just asking for trouble. Only things cats like as well as boxes are bags.)
