Dear friends! The Christmas time is here again! We have already got some early gifts - small polar bear babies. Even though we know not all of them will make it let's hope for the best!

Of course, there's also a little Advent story to go with this thread:

Dear friends! The end of the previous thread was very sad - let's hope November will bring us also good and happy news. The Winter is - if not already here - around the corner .... It will be thrilling to see from which zoo we receive the first news of a furry baby bear.

Dear friends! The days are getting more and more chilly but don't you worry! Our Knuipe is well prepared to welcome even the coldest days. There's always fresh Herkules and the samovar is hot all day long! We have also lots of yammy snacks to go with the drinks Uncle Sergej is creating for us!

Dear friends! Again it's time for a big Oktobear Fest in our Knuipe and as usual it will go on for weeks! In Munich there's a very special party going on, too. You can read more about it here:

Dear friends! As you all know by now I love the Fall and I'm happy to welcome this season again! Even our white fluffy friends are enjoying the cooler days while they're waiting for their favourite season - the Winter! :-) Fiete sent me lovely greetings which I want to share with you:

Dear friends! It's August and slowly but surely we're heading for the Fall. However, the colourful August allows us to enjoy the warm weather and sample all the veggies and fruit we can hopefully harvest!

Our friend Fiete has arranged something special for you:

Dear friends! Many of you are having a Summer holiday or at least looking forward to it. I wish you all very cosy and relaxing days doing whatever you like to do! For us 'Freiherrinnen' every day is a holiday so let's enjoy our days, too! :-)

Dear friends! The beginning of this Summer has been very strange - to put it mildly! Let's hope the weather gods will take a look at their calender and realize it IS Summer!

Dear friends! Many of us have already felt the first heat wawe of the Summer season. Even our Knuipe has open the Knugarden and we hope, of course, lots of visitors there. Uncle Sergej is ready to welcome you all!

Dear friends! The end of April was unusually cold but May has shown us a sunny face. Let's hope this is the beginning of the Summer period. This time of the year is a perfect time to visit our fourlegged friends in different zoos. Not only because there are sweet babies but also to say 'hello' to the adult animals. I'm looking forward to wonderful reports in KWM! :-)

Dear friends! The Spring doesn't mean only trees turning green and the fruit trees blooming. It's the time when the young polar bear cubs introduce themselves to us. Juno, Lili, Nick and Simon, Cora's baby still without name when I'm writing this - how adorable they all are! And, of course, we mustn't forget the cubs born in the wild either! Let's be grateful for these miracles!

Dear friends! I hope the apple and cherry blossoms will cheer you up even during sad and bad times. I'm sure our magic bear will help you, too!

I have made a little Easter story for you - just couldn't resist .....

Dear friends! Although the Winter hasn't completely left us I decided to declare  the Spring season opened  in the Knuipe. I hope Palle-Jooseppi doesn't mind! :-)

Dear friends! It looks like this Winter is a very mild Winter almost everywhere. However, it's still February so it's possible King Bore will pay us another visit or two .... That's why this thread goes in frosty colours but we can start looking forward to brighter colours!

Dear friends! Again it's time to celebrate an anniversary - it was eight years ago I started Knutitours! I want to thank all my co-passangers for the wonderful years and hope our journey will go on and on and on ....

 

Of course, I've made a little anniversary article in KWM:

Dear friends! It's time to thank you all for the year 2015. It has again been a year with both sad and happy news - just like every previous year. I had planned to make a summary of what happened during the year but it proved to be a mission impossible. Instead I published some new year cards from our fluffy friends with just a few words .....


Time for 'thank yous' for the year 2015

November - time for polar bear birthdays and births

Dear friends! November is a month with many faces. We don't like the greyness but we love to celebrate birthdays and births of our white giant bears. We can hardly wait for - hopefully - happy family news from the polar bear enclosures in many zoos. Personally I hope we will have a Scandinavian baby boom this season!

Even this year I've prepared a little Halloween story for you:

Dear friends! It's already October and soon the 'cubbie season' is here. Let's hope we will get many happy family news from many zoos! Soon its also time to celebrate the birthdays of our white fluffy friends.

Why don't we start 'rehearsing' the coming parties? Fiete has very kindly invited us all to his October Fest and, naturally, we'll have lots of parties even in our Knuipe!
