CHRISTMAS GREETINGS



Caption: Wu, the newest addition to the Goat Rope Farm menagerie, joins with the rest (with the possible exception of the goats) in wishing all a Merry Christmas. He's already trying to get a leg up on the New Year.

By way of a Christmas Greeting, here's a little selection from Act I, Scene i of Hamlet as spoken by Marcellus:

Some say that ever 'gainst that season
comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
This bird of dawning singeth all night long.
And then they say no spirit dare stir
abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets
strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So Hallowed, and so gracious, is that time.


Here's hoping that holds up this holiday season.

May all you creatures and critters have a Joy-filled & Merry Christmas! (Remember: at midnight tonight all animals can speak—or so Alex the cat tells me)

May peace and plenty be the first to lift the latch on your door, and happiness be guided to your home by the candle of Christmas. (A Celtic Blessing)
