Santa Claus is coming...
I'm not whiny anymore. I apologize for the long lasting depressing title.
Here's some finds from an internet round today, 8th of December 2008
12 Days of Christmas Ring and Run
BTW, turtledove has nothing to do with turtles. It should be called turturdove, as it's Latin name is turtur. The bird is named after it's call, which can be imitated with "turr... turr...". Turtledove is a symbol of solitude, grace, harmony, affection and faithfulness, so giving a gift of a pair of turtledoves is a very precious token of love indeed...
So to me the ornaments and cards depicting a chimaera of turtles and doves are offensive. But - what ever rocks your boat. You don't need to mind me. I still love Christmas Krinkles.
tip junkie has lovely ideas and such.
