[music |The Dishwasher]

Silent Night was written in 1818, by an Austrian priest Joseph Mohr. He was told the day before Christmas that the church organ was broken and would not be prepared in time for Christmas Eve. He was saddened by this and could not think of Christmas without music, so he wanted to write a carol that could be sung by choir to guitar music. He sat down and wrote three stanzas. Later that night the people in the little Austrian Church sang "Stille Nacht" for the first time.

What are you all doing for the holidays?

1898 film of Santa Claus.. kinda creepy. lol

OOh! That sounds yummy. I did pot pies, egg, cheese, black bean and corn burritos, cranberries, and lefse tonight.

Not sure what I'm making tomorrow. I'm kind of a throw it together at the ime of person, which has led to disasters and amazing food. ;)

I hope you're having a fantastic Holiday! :)

Our Christmas traditions are falling by the wayside. My mom got promoted at work and has been too busy for anything after work. My only sister is with her in-laws. I think we're all going to sleep in, open presents eventually and then have a family party. We still do my favorite thing, though, where we watch Scrooge (Albert Finney version) with my aunts, uncles and cousins. THAT was awesome.

Family's all here for Christmas. I have a big, big, big turkey defrosting in my laundry room sink that will be the centre piece for a wonderful feast tomorrow.

Have a great holiday!

Best night of the year to work. There's no one here. I may lie on the front desk and sleep.

Haha, at first I was all, "but where's the sound?!"

I'm Jewish, so my family doesn't have any Christmas traditions. We used to do the tree and gifts, but that faded out as we got older. This is the second year I'll be going to Palo Alto, which is where my best friend's grandparents live, to spend the day with her family. There are about twenty people in the family and they range from ages 1 week to 70something. They're a very eclectic bunch. They do the whole early dinner thing (I've never understood that) and then I get to participate in the craziest White Elephant gift exchange of all time (my gift is ground coffee beans from my favorite coffee shop in San Francisco and a book of Shakespearian insults).

Oh gosh I am so behind on Facebook

I hope to start catching up on it tomorrow!

I'm visiting my family, consisting of: my mom, my sis, my bro in law, my older niece, and my younger niece who was very concerned last night about checking the size of the chimney...Santa NEEDS to bring her a scooter, you understand! :) Merry Christmas :)
