Bah! I'm planning a surprise counter-offensive to catch you off guard. And if any of my troops are caught fraternizing with the enemy in no-man's land, they'll be summarily shot as an example.

Cheers, Neilster

Happy Santa Lucia (December 13)

I like the idea of gingerbread cookies and coffee served in bed



This Swedish festival of lights helps to brighten up the long winter nights in December. It celebrates the life of a real saint, Lucia, who was known for her kindness and love.

HOW DO SWEDISH PEOPLE CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY?

On December 13th, one of the shortest days of winter, girls in Sweden dress up as Santa Lucia wearing a white dress and a crown of candles. Boys carry a candle and wear a kind of white pyjama. They wear hats that are pointy with golden stars on them.

In Sweden we do not wear candles anymore because before girls caught their hair on fire very often. Today we use modern candles with batteries in them.

After lunch most schools close on Santa Lucia day around noon. It is a national holliday which comes on the 13th of December. There are also special foods for Lucia's Day like Lussekatter (delicious saffron buns made in any number of figures: cats, "s" shapes, or figure eights.) and spicy gingerbread biscuits. In big cities in Sweden there are beauty contests where some women dress up as Santa Lucia and the judges and the people vote for the Santa Lucia of the year. In schools people sing Santa Lucia's song. The words in Swedish and English are in the right-hand column.

WHO WAS SAINT LUCIA?

Saint Lucia was a saint because of her kindness and her love. She was an Italian Christian who lived in Sicily in the 4th century. Some people believe she once visited Sweden. December 13th is also her feast day.

The way she became a saint was that a man who loved her and Lucia didn't like him, Lucia's mother asked her to marry the man but she refused so the man heard about this and he said he would burn her. But Lucia prayed to God to have the power to survive the fire. Because of her kindness to others her wish was granted. The man tried to burn her but she had the power to withstand fire so the man got a sword and stuck it into Lucia's throat. Still Lucia survived for three more hours speaking beautifal words.

There is also another story for her being a saint which goes like this.

Saint Lucia was a very kind person and there was a man who loved her very much but she didn't like him very much. The thing the man loved most about Saint Lucia was her eyes. Then she gave him her eyes but a miracle happened she grew back her eyes but this time they were even more beautifal then ever. The man asked for those eyes but she refused to give them so the man wanted to kill her and he killed her with a knife into her heart.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2008 to one and all.

Or, perhaps Kwanzaanukah?

Now we just need Matrix to put some festive smileys in their table for this time of year.
