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:

Ich würde mir vor allem etwas mehr Frieden in der Welt wünschen.
Das wäre das größte Geschenk für mich - sonst habe ich alles...

I have more wishes as the health for my whole family and the cats and tortoise :)
On the other hand I am happy to get something nice from Uwe and from the children.
I hope that the cats do not bring the mice :)

Merry Christmas to you all from Copenhagen.

Wonderful Cards Mervi. And thanks a lot for the greetings.

Patricia, thanks a lot for the card, that arrived yesterday. Paw waves from here from the ever starving cats.

Cheers! Mission accomplished.
The tree is waiting for Christmas Eve :D

Today I met a little boy. Three fingers up, so he was three. He approached Tommi, fearless. Tommi liked him too and felt like giving him a kiss. The boy wasn't afraid. I asked him if he was looking forward to the Christkind to come (a term which implies the presents he'd be given). He said yes and asked me: What are you looking forward to on Christmas?
I was baffled. I had never been asked by a kid that age I had never met before abour MY Christmas expectations.
I answered him: Well, with grown-up people it's a bit different. We are happy if we stay healthy and sound. His mum smiled and so did the boy.

Is your tree outside? I worked 2 hours at the tree under Sydney's eyes.
Your Christmas card is wonderful.
Muffin is excited about the tree :)
I am glad your cats are doing well

Merry Christmas to all Knupians, and a Happy New Year.
Just peeking in to leave some season's greetings and a peck on a cheek for angel Knute pie.

Knugs, Leaf

Mervi - wir könnten für die Katzen kleine
Thunfischbällchen in den Baum hängen. :D

Ich trinke einen Rumsky mit - CHEERS. :)

Chris - Nanu is a lovely bear! :D

Bärgit - The letter is changed - thank you! :D I think Rumsky sounds great so Uncle Sergej will bring it to you as soon as possible. - I can understand Tommi is disappointed. Who could possibly eat the boring balls? :D

Merry Christmas to you and your dears on other end of the leish!

Happy Howls!

Mervi - Thank you for your lovely surprise; there's a reply in your mailbox concerning the change of a letter :D

Uncle Sergej - What about a steaming hot Rumsky?
I'm freezing my hands off putting the balls on the Christmas tree.

Tommi refused to participate since I'm not hanging any salami, hot dogs or other kind of Würstle on the tree :D

wünscht auch Frohe Weihnacht.
Ganz schöne Beißerchen... ;)

TONJAs Kleines sieht super aus -
auch Eisbärinnen sind verschieden.
Tonja läuft zwar viel, aber sie versorgt
ihr Kind einwandfrei: das ist die Hauptsache!

Chris - You were lucky to see so much 'action'! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Tonja's baby is growing and developing very well. Oh bear, it already looks very 'polar beary'.

I wanted to send personal Christmas greetings to everybody but, of course, I didn't make it. Some of you have already received this card via email but I insert the link here for those who haven't seen it.


And here's a Christmas card from Alex, Ralf and Lady Pepper:
