Okay, a total change of mood with my other favorite holiday song. FWIW it really doesn't snow anywhere near this much in the lower areas of W. Washington especially since the areas being shown are in/around the City of Gig Harbor which is at sea level on the Puget Sound right on the water.

I know, I drag this one out every year. But it's something I feel we all need to remember. When all is said and done, no matter the cause, be it just or unjust; no matter who won or who lost, in the end we are all someone's daughter or son.

"Ode of Rememberance"

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to Mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give birth in the spring.

Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.

We should've known. Only a coordinated team of women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

I'm just sayin'...

Amid all the parties, the parades, the bar-b-ques, and the long, three day weekend, please don't lose site of the reason for it all.

Take a moment. Thank a vet. Say a prayer for those who aren't here to thank. And take a moment of silence for those whom we may never know.

*So* completely forwarded from another LJ I'm on:

"What the world needs now is a retelling of the Ten Plagues, by Peeps ".

Someone's running the risk of being struck by lightning. It isn't me, for a change.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.’

– Luke 8: 8-14

No matter your beliefs, I wish the very best to you and all you hold dear.

I know this one sounds a bit weird, but you wouldn't believe the number of times I had to rerun this so that it wouldn't come out sounding ... well... obscene is probably the right term.

Liberated directly from aerianya because I really love it.

Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.

What a great thought for the season...
