3 1/2 more days until Santa comes to town! I want to wish everyone here a truly Merry Christmas, to all of you and your loved ones. Spend some time around the fire with loved ones. In the Christmas spirit, I will also say Happy Holidays to those here that don't celebrate Christmas. :)

My congratulations with all my best wishes to everyone with no exclusions, Americans! Peace to your Home and houses!
And now, all together! (Russian kid song d.d. 1903 the immortal song since that time in Russia over all the decades of the previous Century) http://s20.rimg.info/e4a5dddaecdbf39001f2f1a2657a9443.gif (http://smayliki.ru/smilie-1327179015.html)

There was a Fir-Tree born in woods,
And there she was grown,
In winter and in summer both
The grace and green she was

The Snowstorm sang a song for her:
«Sleep, Firry, sleep tight-tight»
The Frost was covering with snow:
“Don't freeze in such cold night”

A yellow-bellied Bunny there
Was leaping under fir
From time to time an angry Wolf
Was running over near

The snow around the thicky woods
Is creaking under skid
A shaggy Gee-Gee frisks ahead
In greatest rush indeed

The Gee-Gee's carrying firewoods
On them there is a Man
He chopped down our little Fir
At the very rootlet

And now in gallant here she is
On feast to us she came
And many many joyances
All little kids she gave

I have never used the term 'Happy Holidays' in relation to Christmas and never will.

Happy Hanukkah to any of the Hebrew Faith who may be here,

and Merry Christmas to All!

I Our Lord's Grace.:)

Several years ago, I went to a Christmas Concert put on by Neil Diamond. It was magnificent.

But He being Jewish, mentioned he had far more Christian friends, but did do a Hava Naglia
for his religion. He was a cantor growing up.

As I am not able to give you traditional Russian dishes: sturgeon, Black Caviar and Vodka to your Christmas table, please find below 3 Russian cartoons in English for your children.

A tale for grown ups. (Christmas Eve" (Russian: Ночь пе́ред Рождество́м, Noch pered Rozhdestvom, which literally translates as "The Night Before Christmas"), is the first story in the second volume of the collection "Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka" by Nikolai Gogol.)

Today on our TV there was an American film 'Blast from the Past', the rare exclusion of your movies on our TV which my family watched with a real pleasure.

Don't be a jerk. Just because I give you crap doesn't mean I (we) don't want you around. If I wanted to agree with myself I got a mirror here somewhere. I think.

Speaking for myself, I would very much like for Balu to stay and post.
He is very intelligent and brings a different perspective to this board, MUCH SAME AS DOES DRUMMOND, NOIR, etc...
Additionally, I like to learn...
Learn about other cultures, races, nations, etc..
Besides, back in my wild young days I was a vodka drinking freak, back then top vodka's were Smirnoff, TyVarsky(spellings?) and one other but I FORGET THE NAME.
I drank so much that I felt my blood became a bit Russian... :laugh:-Tyr

I am also glad that there are Americans who are intelligent and can behave themselves. Unfortunately I can see the posts in quotes of those who were brought up in pigsty. But such persons are everywhere, so I don't care. http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/standart/friends.gif

I don't have a problem with him. What I have noticed from our international members is they are far less tolerant to difference. And, guess which ones try to pretend they have me on ignore?

I don't know how to teach tolerance. I listen to everyone. Agree or not. I also can't teach perception. If I don't like someone, everybody on the board knows it. Dislike and disagreement are two very different things.
