As is traditional at this time of year, I expect I will be abducted by aliens, away for a while and have no memory of what occurred.
P.P.S. As a last thought; please enjoy your festive fair responsibly and avoid leaving any empty bottles lying about. 😀
Twas the night before Christmas,
And through all WordPress house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Because they’d eaten the mouse,
The code wranglers were nestled,
All snug in their beds,
Whilst visions of fudge brownies,
Danced in their heads,
Then down from the chimney,
All covered in soot,
Came an ancient code wrangler
Who’d chewed of his foot
Up, he proclaimed,
There’s work to do still
There’s a Reader to wrap,
And send them a bill,
The customers heard this,
And thought it unfair,
So they caught the old wrangler,
And pulled out his hair,
He’s a national treasure,
They cried loudly and puffed,
He belongs behind glass,
But first have him stuffed.
I hope you enjoyed that, although it’s not up to the standard of this chap. How did he know about code wranglers so long ago.
“Twas the Night before Christmas” or “A Visit from St Nicholas”. The complete poem by Clement Clarke Moore first published in 1823 and the first time that St Nicholas was associated with a sleigh and reindeers. It is a real joy to read.

Twas the day before the night before Christmas and all through the city twas well. Then it got silly.
Due to unexpected technical difficulties and the after effects of abduction by Yuletide aliens, we will be temporarily off-line. I hope you all enjoy your holidays. 😀
Images temporarily abducted from the interweb.
🙂 It’s like this, when every new day is a gift, then every day is as joyful as Xmas.
And now 4 galleries of Christmas 2016. We hope you enjoy as many kinds of Xmas as you like and you can click on any picture to expand it.
