Seasonal Greetings
« on: 24 Dec 2015, 14:44 »

...or as it should more properly be said: Merry Christmas, everybody!

Enjoy your festive holiday season, whether religious or secular, and return refreshed in the New Year!

Merry Christmas!

On a related note, I suck at wrapping gifts!

The Christmas tree is up and decorated, there are presents under it, my daughter and son-in-law are here.  Life is good right now.

The cats are perched on nearby sofas, planning which ornaments they will knock down during the night.

The solstice scrolls have been burned. 

Peace on Earth, good will towards everyone.

Family Christmas lunch #1 down, #2 still to come tomorrow.

We are actually hosting tomorrow's lunch - this is the first time we are doing so instead of Mum. I'm kind of embarrased that it's taken that long for me to suggest it.

Ever notice that when Ebenezer Scrooge travels with the Ghost of Christmas Past, he never sees a young Jacob Marley?  Seems odd to me.

Happy Boxing Day!

Special good wishes to everyone who lost a family member during the year and is going through their first Christmas without them.

I asked my wife if she wanted to change into trunks and go a few rounds with me since it was Boxing Day. Fortunately she said no.

Among other gifts that I received was a Raspberry Pi Kit, and a T-shirt reading "I'm gonna have to science the shit out of this", which I figure is an appropriate T-shirt to wear while working with the Raspberry Pi kit. 

Also received a set of Glencairn tasting glasses, with my initial on them.

Necroing the year old thread to wish you all a very, merry Christmas!

This year's highlights for me (so far) include:

  • Brought in the Christmas tree a week early. The local free brigadiers sell some on the weekend before Xmas, so this time it was a bit earlier than usual.
  • On the 22nd, riding my bike home from work I was treated to a light show of an array of these in place of the usual street lights. Courtesy of the local chapter of farmer's union. Jätkänkynttilä would literally translate to "a lumberjack's candle" - a slowly burning fire on a dried up log (see the link for pics).
  • Today I did my godfatherly duty as a Santa to two brothers aged 4 and 2 respectively. Not all of you get a chance, because in some parts the Xmas gifts magically appear overnight. Here they are customarily delivered by an actual Santa on Christmas Eve (we live closer to Santa's starting point) :-)

I might have used this before; but have some kittens and music.

Happy Xmas, and a Merry New Year to you all!
