.......And to All a Good Night

Rose photo dates from early Summer, I took it thinking that it would be nice to remind me of warmth, light and flowers sometime in mid Winter.

Have just listened to part of an NPR program that informs us  Christmas was singlehandedly popularized by Charles Dickens. Before "A Christmas Carol" it was a sort of minor holiday; the power of the word and of some clever ad men is awesome. But do not think that I am such a terrible curmudgeon regarding this season. Just today I have been cleaning house with holiday cheerfulness, accompanied by rabbits thumping behind the sofa. Only the restocking of a new bunvention with three kinds of hay has soothed injured feelings. As far as spiritual inspiration, for me this time of year seems to call for Lord Buckley's "The Nazz" and you can hear it here
Don't eat with your mouth full, share your food, may all buns have good appetites and plenty of greens.

Special get well soon wishes to our bunfriends in Nottingham, Hugo and Miss Eve

May all our Blogosphere friends and buns stay warm, be happy and dig infinity.

Looks like the bunnies have the right idea, as always!

I didn't hear the NPR show, but just to clarify, Christmas as we know it got rolling with Dickens. Prior to that it was looked down upon in America because back home in England it was a rowdy day for drinking and carousing. The Puritans didn't think much of that sort of thing and discouraged Christmas celebrations.

Merry Christmas, no matter how you observe the day!

That rose was a delightful surprise! We've been snowed in for the past few days and it's nice to see something fresh and blooming!

Hope you all have a very Merry Holiday!
