We are inviting any of you furs who would like a little Christmas greeting from us and our furmily to send us a P-mail with your address. We have s few, but we think we should update the list.
Its just a little photo-collage print...but we thought it would be fun to share them in the mail.
Today was St Nicholas Day!
Meowmy's pawrents used to enjoy that fun day when they lived in Europe...The Netherlands...but when they came to Canada, they dropped it, because it wasn't celebrated on this side of the pond...they would put a carrot in their wooden shoe for the St's horse, and if they had been good, they would get a gift...or some coal if they had not been good...kind of like our Santa Claus...but if you had been really bad you might get carried off in the St's helper's bag...oh-oh! MOL!
There would be a gift exchange, and special songs and treats.
Then when it was Dec 25th, everyone had a nice and quiet holy day, to reflect on what the true meaning of Christmas really is.
Sometimes we hear meowmy thinking out loud that she thinks we would do well here, to return to such a time as those days...
Well...Happy St Nicholas Day...and soon: A Blessed Christmas to all!

Happy St. Nicholas Day!
Alles gute zum Nickolaus, dear Meezers.
In Germany the kids put a boot next to the front door on the night of Dec. 5th and next morning St. Nick has put a present in the boot. I would have put a boot out but I don't have any :(
Also the kids dress up as Christmas characters or Princess or something else fun, not scary. And they go from house to house in the evening singing carols or reciting a poem and they get candy. Kinda like Halloween but not scary.
I agree, Christmas is too commercial now.
Happy St. Nick day to you all...what a wonderful story!
We would love to send you a card and get one from you too...we will pawmail you with our address...
or is that M&P Hmmmm...
I furget as I usually come in dreams to say hello
Odd using a keyboard
Pops Grands were from Germany and he remembers talking about the old customs. Yes it would be nice if the world would slow down and take the time to simply notice the better things.
I will remind Pops about cards
