Come on, baby, spend Christmas with me!

After it’s debut on the WordPress blogging scene last Christmas, Company For Christmas (C4C) is back again. C4C is a blog site run by volunteer bloggers from all over this great globe spreading Christmas cheer and connection to those who may need it. Or to those who just want to hang out on Christmas Day on an island of sanity in an ocean of craziness. Last year it became a marshalling point for those who just wanted to chat or get to know other bloggers.
So come along, check it out and help out if you want to. Just let Rarasaur know if you would like to be added to the volunteer list. Last year’s experience was a real positive one with the initiative gathering momentum as Christmas was celebrated around the world.
C4C where Christmas lasts at least 36 hours!

A Schlocky Rhyming Christmas

It had to happen sooner or later, so it might well be at Christmas when goodwill to fellow man and blogger is supposedly at its highest.

This would be a good time to eject if you hate cheese, schlock or have inadverantly landed here only for mental stimulation.

‘Twas the day of Christmas
And all through the house
All creatures were stirring
Even the spouse
The tree was adorned
And the presents destined to fate
For the family members knew
That unwrapping must wait
For Christmas is about people
And they would come first
A feast to celebrate
More than one birth
Yes it’s true that Jesus was born
On this very day
But as luck would have it
So too was the spouse, it’s always been that way
A birthday cake and card
Must also be had
Happy birthday sung
Because he is dad (and can perfom a miracle or two when pressed)
It is a day to come together
And celebrate what matters
A day for laughter
And cross-generational chatter
And after lunch
With stomachs replete
The teens distribute the presents
With much stomping of feet
A whole lot of ripping
Of paper ensues
What’s that odd looking moving gift?
We all haven’t a clue
It seems at the moment
That my idea is not so jolly
Of choosing that Adam and Eve mug
For old Aunt Molly
It’s a little bit naughty
But could cause some grief
When the hot water dissolves
Good ole’ Adam’s fig leaf

The food’s a cooking
And all is in place
For the family to descend
And leave more than a trace
So far so good
The situation’s not overly curly
For my mother in law
Has not turned up too early
She usually comes
Two hours before
The critical path time
It’s part of our familty folklore
So, I’m thankful
For small mercies
And look forward to the repast
The time is almost here, it’s coming up fast
So nothing is left
Other than to say
I wish you all a Merry Christmas
[And Happy Birthday, if it’s relevant to you]
And peace and sanity for the day!
The curtain will be raised
Even more tonight
When I blog at Company for Christmas
To make someone’s day seem more bright

A Wonderful Blogging Reason for the Upcoming Season

Please check out this wonderful initiative by a fellow blogger, Rule of Stupid. Christmas Day can be hard for those who are seperated or distanced from friends and family. The blogging community is a caring community and Christmas Day is the perfect choice to spread some blog love and make new connections.

If you can contribute an hour or two and wish to swing by the blog and join the chat over virtual egg nog and christmas pudding, then please do so. You never know which angel might be sitting at that Christmas table.

The blog address for the event is
