this is a bit of a random post: miscilanious merriness, free form festivity. it's a linky christmas party!
you must have a look at the brilliant and very amusing christmas by color posters, gift wrap and cards
"Frustrated at the plethora of Christmas reds, whites and greens we decided to explore the colours people really associate with their Christmas.
Thousands of people from around the world embraced the project and relished the opportunity to suggest their own colour and its personal meaning."
our traditional christmas day cocktail is pimm's no. 1 cup and dry ginger ale, garnished with lemon, orange and a sliver of cucumber. very refreshing for a warm australian summer's day! do you have a favorite christmas libation you'd like to share? comment below and i'll give it a try. sigh. it's a tough job...
another australian christmas classic is white christmas slice. it fully embraces the non-dieting sentiment of christmas and has about the same nutritional content as you'd get from eating a synthetic christmas tree, but really its yum! and there simply aren't enough opportunities to eat glacé cherries and rice krispies together.
do you have a favorite christmas movie? i admit completely without shame, that my all-time favorite is the muppet christmas carol. of course i appreciate the original story by charles dickens, but come on! who can resist the muppets+christmas+songs?!
and finally, i've made a festive pattern that you can use to decorate your desktop, or twitter, or facespace or maybe even your bathroom.
