23 Days Left Until Christmas

At the North Pole:

You know the names of Santa’s reindeer; do you?  They are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and of course Rudolph.  So with the Christmas flight  coming in three weeks they are now on a huge eating regimen!  They get to enjoy all the hay, fruits, and food they want!  They have to eat lots of food so they have the energy to fly around the world in 24 hours.  It’s the ultimate buffet eating plan!

Christmas Song:

The song Deck the Halls has been around since the sixteenth century!  The melody of “Deck the Hall” is taken from “Nos Galan” or New Year’s Eve, a traditional Welsh New Year’s Eve carol published in 1794.  The current version of Deck the Halls are found in The Song Book edited by John Hullah, published in 1866.  Although there are many versions of this song.  I enjoy this version from Mannheim Steamroller the most!

Child’s Play is a great charity!  This charity involves video gamers who donate money and toys to kids in hospitals.  The money donated goes to buying video games and toys for kids to play while they are getting treatment in hospitals.  Kids need an escape from all the painful treatments and what better to provide that escape than video games.  Learn more about Child’s Play at: http://www.childsplaycharity.org/.
