Happy Yule to all my fellow Pagans, and to everyone else, a very merry multi-denominational midwinter festival of your choice! :D

Merry Christmas, everybody :smiley:

Kids had us up at a quarter past five this morning :o  Still, I have a feeling it might be the last time - the eldest is nine, so I doubt the illusion will last much longer.  I'm a little surprised it's lasted this long, really :smiley:

*Illusion*, Ed? What *Illusion*? I too was up at 4.30am this morning to light my Christmas pipe with Christmas tobacco and pop the cork on my Christmas malt.

None of this was on my desk when I went to bed last night (and I'd tied bells to Skovia's knees so that she would wake me if she got up in the middle of the night). My current state of merriness, therefore, has been proven by this scientifically controlled experiment to result from paranormal intrusion.

Seriously, I can't believe in gods and all this heavenly Jesus stuff, but I *choose* to believe in Santa. The simple wee things we ask of him (none of your outlandish peace on earth, goodwill to all mankind pipedreams) actually can come true.

My next door neighbours ain't well-heeled by any means, but their two kids asked Santa for bikes ... and they got them! Now that's the kind of miracle I can make some sense of.

Love and happy day to y'all. Neil

Sounds like a good time, Neil :afro:  I could still happily light up a christmas roley, but I don't think the wife and kids would have anything good to say about it :grin:  My kids didn't get the X-Box 360 they were both pining for, but they were so convinced they'd get them, they were already planning whose would be downstairs and whose would reside in their bedroom before they began unwrapping the first present.  Still, it gave us a chance to rub in all their misdeeds for the past month and ask them if they thought maybe their behaviour had some bearing on whether they got the prezzies they wanted.  At £300 a throw, it could be a few years before they're considered well behaved enough to even share one. :grin:

There's a website at http://www.noradsanta.org/en/map/index.php where you can track Santa's progress around the world, and watch video reports by eyewitnesses.  My kids were enthralled by it.  Lovely idea, isn't it? :smiley:

Hoping everyone has a pleasant holiday of their choice.

And kinda wishing it didn't involve so damned much family time.

Not sure about all this be-good-and-pick-up-your-reward-on-the-big-day stuff, Ed. All a bit theist. Maybe Santa-believers should bring in the kind of confession system employed by the Catholic church ... tell us you've been naughty, say half a dozen Hail Maries ... and pick up a X-Box 360. I'm sure the kids were happy with whatever the Red Man brought, though. Hope you're all having a superb day. Love. Neil

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season, whatever you're celebrating.  :smiley:
I've added 2" to my waist and I'm still going strong... so far. The Christmas tobacco may be partly to blame for that, but mostly a complete lack of will is the cause-- I've never met a pumpkin pie or turkey I didn't love. I'm not prejudice, either, I love 'em both the same, although not at the same time.
We're slowly trying to wean the kids off the presents and onto the spirit of the whole thing, but it's an uphill battle-- a veritable obstacle course of ipods, new shoes and trinkets. Throw in the odd candycane sticking to the couch, empty box of batteries and a cat that thinks the tree is there to conquer and, mister, you've got the makings of a hell of a party. But it's worth it to see the smile.... on my face.
"Lord, here comes the flood, we will say goodbye to flesh and blood. If, again, the seas are silent in any still alive, it'll be those who gave their island to survive. Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry."
