Worth the wait! :clap::clap::clap:

Not very Christmasy but one of my favorite songs of all time:

20th

Here is the holiday card from the President of Estonia (his cards are always the coolest! - for example, this year's card has references to a big pop music festival, our first satellite sent into space this year, an alphabet book that every child gets on their first day of school, the silhouette of our capital and even vintage spice cans!)

Presidendi jõulukaart 2013

And here is a gingerbread decoration idea that I plan to make every Christmas, and never get round to... Maybe you'll do better than me

What you need are round gingerbreads, marmelade balls, glaze (made out of egg whites and powdered sugar), and sprinkles to decorate. It is so wonderfully simple, check out this link. It is in Estonian, but the photos are self-explanatory.

Winter Solstice

A blessed Solstice to all as the Northern Hemisphere moves back into the light.

December 22th, first day of new spring!

Two treats:

First, one of the deep-feeling musics i have got to know till now, Karagümrük by Stelios Petrakis, based on old Anatolian sufi music. And yes, it is bellydanceable!

Second, an Inuit tale, where conclusion comes through a spell done with a [very special] drum, singing, and i am persuaded, there is a lot of dancing included too! The Skeleton Woman as narrated by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Spiritual Emergency: Skeleton Woman [The Life/Death/Life Nature]

Merry Solstice and Merry dancing to all of you!

Everyone is on FB these days in their own little gangs. Yawn.

So, as promised (and rather earlier local time than I was expected - washing machine repair man has been and gone and it's not yet 8am :shok:) - the Estonian Wild Boar Cam.

This was posted last year (by Safran?) and it's now traditional for my festive internetting to have a background of Estonian forest sounds; click over quickly if there are interesting noises! No snow as yet but it's windy there this morning. We are promised Wind and Torrential Rain here this afternoon, on an Amber Warning which means prepare to do something, apparently. I will go and get the shopping ASAP, then prepare to stay indoors and make biscuits. :D

Happy Christmas all!

Ah.. The wild boar cam. I think I saw up to 28 wild boars there at the same time last year (including piglets). Sometimes also venison(?), humans bringing food and birds eating some of the food... ;)

:doh: Duh! I posted on the wrong thread. Feel free to move it over, o mighty and all-powerful Mods.

No problem, you're not the only one. I suppose your post will be moved to the right thread as soon as moderator Dev or supermoderators Mosaic or Gisela sees it. :)

Bonus post

Here is a bonus post from me.

For your amusement, I've gone through the old TPBDC threads - that is 535 pages and 5331 posts and dug out some gems for you.

First a winter theme:




And then of course an old and hidden gem from the first thread: ;)

And some more green costumes if this is your preferred X-mas color:









And last, but not least:




I also had a category named "the home of the missing Christmas decorations", but I think I'll leave it for now.

Wow. Some of those are just... wow. :lol:

But if they were truly Christmas costumes wouldn't they have jingle bells on them instead of beads?

The turd one is still funny! Hahaha. I like the daimonte one with the salmon coloured skirt.

That must have been a lot of digging through the old threads!

Since we don't have an official person for the 25th, let's have a free-for-all.

Here's some cute stuff that's made it into my fb feed since the beginning of the month.

Here is a cool, sexy version of a song that is usually far from that:
