  6. It's the X-mas Factor final,

  9. Whether the night was frosty,
    Or the fog had made it dim,
    Santa wore the waistcoat
    Mrs Christmas made for him.

  14. 'I'm down here, Rudolph!' shouted Santa, breathing a sigh of relief as the sleigh appeared over the edge of the crater. #W8PAdvent @mcrogerson

  15. A late one: Dad was working a night shift: Christmas Eve was sad. On Christmas day, a precious gift - sleigh bells! Here is Dad! #W8PAdvent @anonymoss


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
