Thank you Jarkko & Eija,

Christmas is fast approaching and here we are again. I love this tradition - another beautiful ice work from Eija!....and of course Leonard, Jennifer and Raffi with Silent Night. I have to say that I've recently began learning the violin and I have made it my mission to master this song before Christmas. I have just about succeeded in a fashion. I wish it would sound the way Raffi plays it - much, much more practice needed!

I want to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL on the forum. May this time of the year be everything you would all wish for yourselves.
Here's a Christmas greeting from almost my front door in Queensland, Australia. Not a icicle in sight but we can model sand sculptures!

Merry Christmas to one and all!

Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
~Calvin Coolidge, 1927

Happy Winter Holidays, Dear Cohenites!

To continue tradition of posting cards - the invitation ticket to the New Year party in the State Kremlin Palace.
This is 1988, Our Man is going to release the flawless album. It takes twenty-two years to come forward to this stage.

Dear Eija & Jarkko and everyone else on the Forum ~

Eija ~ Your Winter Holidays 'vase' is exquisitely beautiful :D 8) :D !!! Your gift with the ice is amazing. Such a beautiful collection we have.
Thank you both for everything you've given us in 2011.

Now, may I say exactly the same as Jarkko and Eija have...

Merry Christmas!
Happy Hanukkah!
All Good Things for the New Year!

Calvin Coolidge really encapsulated the meaning of the Christmas spirit, Bev. I love your Christmas beach and water photo card.
Goldin ~ Thank you for sharing your uniquely beautiful card from the Kremlin. WoW.
Theresa ~ What a fun video :D . A clever way of doing it. I remember Sean's Quigley's name. Why?
Mariza ~ I love your sweet Christmas card.

Thank you for the link to Leonard's, Jennifer's, and Raffi's Silent Night, Jarkko. So simple, pure, and fitting.

Instead of just for Iraq, I wish we could sing this song for all countries and regions of the world.

HAPPY HOLIDAY from me too.
For those who have yet to own all, or even some, of Leonard's beautiful works yet, I hope you find a Leonard surprise in your stocking

Nollaig Shona = Happy Christmas! Well done Jarkko for another successful year at the helm and greetings to all the people from many nations I met at LC concerts. If luck is with us we might be able to do it all again. In the meantime we can listen to "Silent Night" and "Show me the Place" ... that can't be bad... :D
