    Seasonal miscellany

    There's some lovely Christmas music being posted over in the classical forum, but I thought we could use somewhere to share other festive things.

    This one brings back memories of being dressed in one of Mum's old petticoats, wearing wings made from wire coat hangers and trying to remember when I was supposed to say "fear not ..."

    Oh I remember when I was in many christmas plays like that. I was three
    years old when kids that year did it. It wasn't until 68 that I was in one.
    One year we did carols and I got to play them.

    I've not played with Carol for ages, she's always doing something else!
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Thanks Margaret, I haven't seen that one since I was quite little.

    Here's a dog who appears to be a little bit mad about the whole Christmas thing - http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=0sUL0KCIc48

    Gosh, Her Maj was so young and so gorgeous. Listening to her speak about the challenges of modern society ... not much has changed at all. I was, however, hanging out for "my husband and I"!

    Here is something quite trashy. Please don't click if you are offended by comedy about religion. http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=zKDC2iBQTYg

    BTW ... I wasn't around until four Christmases later!

    Wow, Stephen (and welcome back!). Thanks for the Raymond Briggs clips (love them) and those fantastic photos.

    Come on down to the southern hemisphere. It's a bad hair quarter (at least!) and, for us girlies, make up simply melts off.


    Here's something, er, trashy but tasty - http://quiz.marthastewart.com/quiz/97 .

    I'm Molasses-Gingerbread Cookies!

    Cheers

    Thanks, Vicki. Took the quiz and I'm a candy-striped cookie sticks guy, apparently.

    Oh Stephen. Hysterically funny and revolting in the same package. Tears of laughter in my eyes. Brilliant!!!

    I don't feel so bad about posting this link now - http://rathergood.com/christmas

    Cheers (it must be time for a beverage or two by now!)
