I do love this time of year. There's excitement in the house -- strange things happen, like trees in the living room, and boughs of evergreen and holly and boxwood draped over the mantle and banister. And the smells are so interesting, like cinnamon and nutmeg and Mom's fattigman bakkels being fried, and coffee cake fresh from the oven and the heavenly smell of turkey roasting.
Outside it is cold. There's a dusting of snow and more coming tonight, the weatherman says, so we will have a white Christmas. Mom stocked up on bird seed and bought some blueberries for the bluejays and cardinals, because they like fresh fruit. We watched them this morning, hopping up and down the deck railing gobbling up sunflower seeds and berries.
I have seen many Christmases, and they are always wonderful. I don't know how many more I will get. Mom is fearful that this may be my last, at least here on earth with her. I hope not, but if it is I will remember it as one enjoyed in a warm home, with plenty of good food and a loving family.
And I will remember sharing the joy of this Christmas with my many good and merry friends from Catster. As the spokescat for our family, I wish you all Merry Christmas, my friends, and a safe, healthy New Year full of good cheer, love and laughter.
Will you join me in raising a cup of mulled catnip?

And I'm glad to raise a cup to you, my fine friends Henry and Finney! As my Norsky brother Bear says, Gledelig Jul!
We will raise that cup of cheer to you our dear friend! Let us all have a prosperous & healthy New Year...stress on the healthy!
