The prompt for this day was to be about Pantomimes. We were asked if we attend and enjoy these. Being that I had no idea what they were, I had to look up the meaning. I found out that they are a traditional British theater play, for children, and adults entertainment. The audience is able to participate by singing songs, and making comments to the actors. It sounds like a fun thing to do. Here’s a link to a more detailed description of the Pantomime.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN – DAY 6 – CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

Now, what to say about Christmas presents? We all know what they are…gifts given and received, usually wrapped in pretty papers and bows, and placed under the Christmas tree, to be opened on either Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning.

Some people celebrate Christmas this way, while others do not. In our family, we did. We would open one small gift on Christmas Eve night, then the rest of them on Christmas morning. We also had gifts (that were not wrapped) left under the tree, by Santa Claus.

I used to get all elaborate with the gift box decorating, making my own creations, trying to be clever about it, and being all fancy with the wrapping. Later on, I didn’t do that as much, and just used regular Christmas themed papers, and pre-made bows. Now, it’s a good day, if I get any wrapping done at the last minute.

Some of the department store gift wrapping services, are convenient. I find a lot of the wrappings just too pretty, and I hate to tear it up when opening the gift. My favorite kind of wrapping, which I’ve done quite a lot, is just plain brown craft paper, tied with twine, or jute. You know, like the song from the movie, “The Sound of Music”. 🙂
