... and the goose is getting fat. Hey, put a penny in the old man's hat....
This is one of the songs that we will sing during our Christmas concert next Saturday. Maybe the English readers of you will know this song, but it is pretty new to me. I am singing in a chorus and I really have to learn my text until then. But the most difficult song is a wonderful Swedish one called ' Jul, jul, stralande jul'. Do you want to listen to it? There is a youtube video here, a Swedish chorus singing it just beautifully. I really have problems with the text, so I have to find half an hour to learn it before Saturday.
If somebody of you happens to be in the Northern part of Germany next Saturday and doesn't know what to do, here is my invitation:
I love those concerts in a church, the atmosphere there is always so festive and moody and everyone is in high spirits.
Finally our house is getting a little christmassy, my daughter started crafting, paper stars and Christmas trees. The stars look just lovely in windows.
She already uses these trees to play with her Schleich animals, but I like them very much, as well and rearranged them for my purposes.
I have crocheted a mug cosy in rainbow colours, to freshen my spirits.
I drank a yogi tea this morning, with honey and cream and when I had a look at the paper of the teabag there was this quote: 'Du musst dein Haus verlassen, um zu lernen' (You have to leave your house to be able to learn). This is definitely true but as it is rainy and stormy today I am very lucky that I haven't go to work today and that I can spend my time indoors.
Another lovely Christmas crochet project were these star coasters that we are using daily at the moment. The pattern is very simple, it is just a chart and you can find it on pinterest, here.
Have a wonderful Christmas time!
