Here is this week’s list of blog posts, puzzles, photographs, comic strips, short stories, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. It’s bigger than usual because I kept finding fascinating things to share with my readers and I didn’t want to leave anything out. Heh. All of these links are also related to this time of year in some way.
A Giant Snowbun. I love this photograph.
Relaxed. If you added a plate full of frosted sugar cookies, a mug or two of eggnog, a good book, and a way to subdue my allergies, this would be my idea of a perfect afternoon.
Sweet Tooth #1. This made me giggle.
The History of Santa Claus in Pictures. What I found most fascinating about this article was that there was a time when celebrating Christmas was illegal in Britain. Had you heard this story before? I sure hadn’t!
Can You Figure Out GCHQ’s Christmas Card Puzzle? I’ve been trying to figure it out but haven’t had much success yet. Can any of my followers do it?
No Presents for Unbelievers. Too funny.
A Letter to Santa. This should really be a full-length novel.
