Christmas tableau.jpg Happy Christmas!
Hello ,
Early in A Child's Christmas in Wales the young Dylan and his friend Jim Prothero witness smoke pouring from Jim's home. After the conflagration has been extinguished Dylan writes that

Nobody could have had a noisier Christmas Eve. And when the firemen turned off the hose and were standing in the wet, smoky room, Jim's Aunt, Miss. Prothero, came downstairs and peered in at them. Jim and I waited, very quietly, to hear what she would say to them. She said the right thing, always. She looked at the three tall firemen in their shining helmets, standing among the smoke and cinders and dissolving snowballs, and she said, "Would you like anything to read?"

My thanks to you for your efforts to keep the 'pedia readable in case the firemen chose one of our articles :-) Best wishes to you and yours and happy editing in 2019. ~~~~

Peace Dove Christmas

Peace dove.svg
Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, peoples rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension.

A Shaker greeting

Hannah Cohoon, Tree of Life or Blazaing Tree, 1845.jpg A Shaker Christmas wish
Give good gifts, one to another
Peace, joy and comfort gladly bestow
Harbor no ill 'gainst sister or brother
Smooth life's journey as you onward go.
Broad as the sunshine, free as the showers.
So shed an influence blessing to prove;
Give for the noblest of efforts your pow'rs;
Blest and be blest, is the law of love.

I'm wishing you a Merry Christmas, because that is what I celebrate. If you don't like Christmas or just don't celebrate it in any of its forms, then please accept a generic "Happy Holidays". If you celebrate no holidays at this time of year, then hopefully you will be satisfied with an even more generic "Season's Greetings". :) BOZ (talk) 15:39, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Is it? I didn't know that - I thought I would treat people to a festive image of my home city that I found on Commons. Very pretty city it is but then I'm biased :)-- 5 albert square (talk) 19:54, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
I spent time in your city in the summer of 1980 5 albert square and have wonderful memories of it. I particularly liked the Scottish National Gallery. Places like the Uffizi, the Louvre and the National Gallery are magnificent but they are so full of art that they left me breathless and I couldn't absorb it all in one visit. The SNG (as Goldilocks might say} was just right. I particularly liked the Titian's. I purchased a poster of this delightful painting by Paton. Sadly it was purloined in a relationship breakup a couple decades ago. In the JL calendar several other of the SNG's works of art are depicted on the Dec the 16th's vignette. I also enjoyed the Waverly Bar which a quick check of the internet shows me is now closed - rats :-( Best regards and have a wonderful Xmas! MarnetteD|Talk 21:03, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Clear tag

Hi Marnette, Hope all is well :),
Just wondering inregards to your edit here does Bzuks template still render funny ?,
I only ask as I know last year his greeting caused issues with mine so this year I added "{{-}}" to the top and bottom of mine so it would keep everything above and below clear so I didn't know if it still rendered funny?,
Many thanks, –Davey2010 Merry Christmas / Happy New Year 20:53, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Davey2010. My understanding (though I could be wrong of course) is that your template works in the same way that the clear tag I use does. One or two editors have mentioned using them to B over the years but it never gets added to his messages. Since it is the thought that counts I stopped worrying about it and just add the tag when I can. When I made the edit you linked to I was struck by the fact that this has actually become a holiday tradition like watching A Christmas Story or reading A Child's Christmas in Wales or Grandma getting run over by a Reindeer :-D I know Santa gets to you hours before he reaches my door so I hope he is extra nice to you this year! MarnetteD|Talk 21:06, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi Marnette, Ahhhh right I thought that was the case but thought I'd double check just incase!, Good to know I've actually left a greeting and haven't caused mayhem *ahem unlike [year* Face-grin.svg,
Hahaha Grandma getting run over by a Reindeer Face-grin.svg, Well thank you for fixing his mess anyway :)
According to https://www.timeanddate.com you're 7 hours behind :(, Timezones are so weird lol,
