And please welcome Lady Kara, heroine of my book, His Judas Bride, or face getting 1 out of 10?
Dudes, I’m sure if you let Lady Kara get a word in she’d tell you that Scotland is not the moon and while in Scotland we have VERY short days at the end of December. It is dark until around 8.30 am and again about 3.30pm in the afternoon, we celebrate Christmas the same as many other places. Christmas dinner etc etc etc. Of course there’s the pressies and the stockings AND the lumps of coal for those who didn’t behave.
After Kara brought you this lovely Christmas card too.
Well, we’ll be spending it at the castle in my glen–unfortunately because Lochalpin is Callm’s home. But,still we will start with a nice walk in the snow in the morning, after the children have opened their presents. Of course we will be having a venison dinner later with our guests.
Fallon will be getting a new set of knives and Arland, some body armour.
We hope they all will. They are certainly all asked with their families. It makes for quite a party and we all play pin the tail on the hamster. That’s usually after Dug has bitten it off.
The hall is beautifully decorated with pine branches and the fire is blazing. Ideal for roasting all sorts.
Then, when everyone has gone to their beds, we go to ours. More I cannot say, except mulled wine by the fire and the Wolf are a nice combination. The name Yuletide comes from the Scandinavians, for whom ‘Yultid’ was the festival celebrated at the twelfth month, being the twelfth name of Odin, who was supposed to come to earth in December, disguised in a hooded cloak. He would sit awhile at the firesides listening to the people, and where there was want he left a gift of bread or coins. I’m sure if you’re good little hamsters and start getting ten out of ten, that’s what you’ll find in your stockings on Christmas morning.
