Dear friends! The Christmas season is here again and we can enjoy the lights and the decorations in cities, villages and in our homes. Hopefully this season will be a happy time for us all!

Man hat in Orsa auf Nachwuchs gehofft, Wilbaer und Ewa haben sich gepaart. Vielleicht hat Ewa schon ein Baby.
Mervi, Chris
Let us drink Glühwein and think on polar bear babies

Britta-Gudrun - I have great difficulties following all the polar bears in the zoo so I choose to follow the ones that are easiest to follow - for instance Berlin, Munich, Tallinn, Vienna, Aalborg, Copenhagen and, of course, Ranua. I would like to have more reports from Orsa - maybe there will be more soon.

Chris - There are so many zoos and so many polar bears ..... luckily!!! :D

Ralph - thank you for the emails. I'll start 'working' on them tomorrow. Reports with informative and entertaining texts are the real pearls in KWM! :D

Chris says...
Wir haben Pärchen in Neumünster, Hamburg, Karlsruhe.
Aber da klappt es leider nicht mit dem Nachwuchs...

Danke Chris, diese drei Zoos sind mir nicht so gelaeufig.

Mervi Good evening from the Kidlington Library
I have managed to put together some stories from my Berlin visit using photos from my new phone. I hope they will now be a bit closer to the high standards set in Knutis Weekly. I have been especially lucky with pictures of Kati and Volodya.
The pictures from Gelsenkirchen will take more sorting out as Lara keeps well away from the glass for a lot of the time and Nanook does as well. I did get some good moments though.
Although cubs are a very magical experience, I think we all know and love the adult bears too.

Mervi, ich glaube, Wilbaer und Ewa sehen einander nur als Geschwister und Hope ist noch viel zu jung und in unseren Zoos sind nur verwitwete Baerinnen....

Ich erinnere mich noch sehr gut an die "kleine" Milak. :)

Ludmila - The Zoo Sauvage has been lucky with the cubs so far. I wish both mothers and their cubbies best of luck!

Knuti-Judi - We plan to decorate our tree in the beginning of next week. I wonder how helpful Mimmi and Nalle will be this year .... :D

Chris - Milak was such a funny cubbie and now she's a mother .... oh bear, where do the years go so fast .... :D

Britta-Gudrun - I had hoped to hear cubbie news from Orsa, too, but it looks like we have to wait until next season.

Happy family news - from Ulli J's site:

Jetzt hat Jelle seine Zeugungsfähigkeit in diesem Jahr zum zweiten Mal unter Beweis gestellt. Der Zoo Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Félicien gab die zweite Geburt in diesem Jahr bekannt. Nachdem das erste Jungtier am 27. November von Aisaqvak geboren wurde, folgte ihr Milak am 11. Dezember. Dies ist die Erstgeburt von Milak.

Hello friends at coffee time!
Django tut es sicherlich leid. Er wollte Dich nicht verletzten.
I hope it will be everything great with Tonja this time.
Do you have a Christmas tree now. We will buy a tree tomorrow.
Vielleicht kommt auch bei uns der Schnee :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it was almost snowing today. OK, it was sleet but it looked white. :D

Ralph - I really hope Tonja's baby will make it this time. At least so har the cubbie is doing fine.

Yeo - What a pity your boss won't be joining you! :D

Ludmila - I wish your cat a nice napping time!

Britta-Gudrun - What a relief the wound is healing well! My hand needs resting even today but it will be fine later.

In KWM you can admire Jutta Kirchners excellent photos of NORA AND RANZO!

I wish everybody a pleasant Friday!

Yeo, ich wuensche einen schoenen gemeinsamen Abend und hoff, ihr koennt die Abwesenheit der Chefin "verschmerzen"...

Ja, es ist frostig kalt und die Voegel haben grossen Appetitt am Vogelhaeuschen.

Mit Django bin ich wieder versoehnt und fuers Christkind lasse ich mich heute auf dem Kopf noch etwas verschoenern.

Mervi, Ranzo und Nora im KWM sind klasse.
Wie geht es mit deiner Hand? Meine Wunden heilen prima.
Ich wuensche einen erfolgreichen Freitag!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
It is cold outside. Minka and Muffin were cuddling with us in the night. Ferdi wanted as always out at 5am. Sydney and Wasja were outside a short time in the morning. Now all cats are sleeping at home :)

Good morning dear all!

Only a little paw-wave. 😉
Herkules and breakfast are ready.
Heute Nachmittag haben wir von der Arbeit aus Weihnachtsfeier. Wir gehen zusammen essen.
Die Chefin kommt nicht mit.
Das ist sehr traurig. 😂😛

Am Wochenende habe ich hoffentlich frei.
I wish you all a pleasant Friday and a good start in the weekend!

Thank you again and Mervi look after your hand.
Another space reference comes to my mind. Apollo 8 going round the moon for the first time at Christmas 1968 and showing us the good earth from space.
Whatever happens with her little one, Tonja has shown how good a mum she is.
