A Steamer...


Yesterdays trivia answer:
In Holland, Santa arrives on a steamer (or ship). But Jodi went another step and told us that he arrives by ship then makes his rounds in a sleigh. Thank you, Jodi!

When I was a kid, Santa came to our house on an evening night the week before Christmas in a firetruck. Such a special memory. He would come running into the house (any house in our tiny town with the porch light on) with paper bags stuffed full of nuts, chocolate drops, gumdrops and an orange for every kid there. Even after we moved to our country home, we would go into Grandma Simmons house for this special evening. The light is still shining in my eyes....

Todays trivia question is:
What song contains the line "There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found." ?

Leave your answer in my comments to be entered in the after-Christmas drawing.

Noah is feeling much better today. His temperature spiked up to 102 during the night, but the doctor said that his lungs and ears are clear, just a viral infection. He is doing so much better already. Our little grandbaby is smiling again. Yah!!

Merry Christmas~

I agree--I think the song is "Frosty the Snowman"--can you hear me sing it? Do I get extra points for a song AND dance?? :)

The Dutch Santa doesn't have a sleigh! He has a white horse, some say is called 'Amerigo' and others say 'bad weather today'.
