Hark the herald snow men
Keh? Surely Christmas is way to early this year!
I live in Africa and there are no Reindeer in training for the oh so jolly season of Christmas parties, spending way too much money and drinking far too many "Cheers to next year" drinks.
We swim to beat off the heat, Braai (barbeque) thick juicy steaks and Boerewors to eat with crisp green salad and potato bakes and have generous amounts of tall, cold (clinkity clink) alcoholic beverages.
Come Christmas Day and families gather for a big, all out, too much food feast - yet managing to force down generous portions of you Aunties yummy pudding. Names get pulled out of a hat and presents swopped, opened and put aside....need another drink after that cos you did not get what you hoped for. But, we have a great day melting in the sun - okay so a snow man would go down well round about then..only cos we could throw ourselves onto it to enjoy the cooling benefits of poor old Frosty. But...we do love to decorate the festive tree...even if it is a shop bought specimen, we go all out.
These wonderful little Tree Dangles have been added to my growing collection of unique Christmas Decorations, along with my Dangling Drums that I made a few years back .. yes, I will post a "How To Make em" article next.
Jingles are fun and quick to make..but wait..there's more - just a few changes and you also get a smashing pair of earrings. All for only $3.00 and there is a further 10% off if you use Coupon Code 10!!
The Elves? Well they are those little buggers that go into your closet and with their Christmas Elfish magic, make your clothes smaller - how nasty!
