Deck the Halls

A very decorated house in the Christmas spirit.

Some people go whole-hog on the holiday decorations. That's a friendly neighbour. You can enjoy the whole tour in this week's Editorial Page video. If somebody else went to all the trouble, go and appreciate, say I, no matter how cold it is. At least it wasn't snowing. If it's looking like Christmas where you are, slow down a bit and enjoy it.

In case it isn't, we have some photos to share with you. Tavaron's been walking in the Austrian woods, where there's snow. She's been baking, too, we can smell it from here. There's been some snow over here in Pennsylvania, too. Indoors is just as interesting, as FWR and his kitty Jax point out. In case you haven't got all your homemade presents ready yet, Caiman Raptor Elk has a suggestion for you, with illustrations.

Once you've settled in with the eggnog, there's plenty to keep you entertained. Awix reviews a film, so that you can decide whether it's worth going out again to see it. Bluebottle's here with more humour – and the annual Christmas crossword. Sharpen your pencils.

There's a quiz and more jokes, and photos from around, and some intriguing information from Willem about some deer with really huge antlers. Paigetheoracle has been reading, and he will tell you, if not all he knows, at least more than you were expecting.

May your week be filled with fun and joy. And remember: hoofprints on your roof will wash off with the next rain or snow.

Quote of the Week: Beauty doesn't have to be about anything. What's a vase about? What's a sunset or a flower about? What, for that matter, is Mozart's Twenty-third Piano Concerto about?

Douglas Adams

This is a question I often ask myself about Mozart.
