Holly, mistletoe and other un-antipodean things

As you all know, TN is a stickler for tradition. I even managed to arrange some snow for our bushfire-stricken Alpine regions and, since I believe that Christmas was invented by Charles Dickens, here present for your pleasure the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre's A Christmas Carol.

(For those who get that far, Part 2 is here, and features a version of Baby It's Cold Outside. Refreshing stuff as the wind clears the smoke from Melbourne skies.)

Merry Christmas to all TN readers, and here's to a brillo 2007. And many thanks to all of you for your support, encouragement and contributions throughout 2006. TN's 2006 round-up should be up by, well, the end of the year.

I don't think it is simply that I played Bob Cratchit in a Year 10 production...brilliant fortification against the days to come. Merry Christmas to you too...

Thank you for the sock puppets. No, I'm serious. Thank you. I forced my family to watch. And even my completely nutty old grandmother got off on it (as well as she could).
