I live in the same town as it is built and stands (unless someone puts it on fire)

Merry Christmas / Christmas Eve (depending on your locale)!!!

We've got a fire roaring the ol' fireplace... cookies in the oven... still in jammies enjoying egg nog and hot chocolate while the kids can be heard upstairs fighting over who Santa likes more.

I love the holidays. Let the fun begin! :D

So... is there a specific reason why you'll have a 10 storyish straw goat up on Christmas? Is there some significants to the Swedes and Christmas like Reindeer's in America?

Please educate me!

I too am working, but I do have the comfort of doing so at home, but I must work a full day today.

Thanks @FrozenSnake, and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Since my son came up last night for Christmas we opened presents last night. My son rocks, he got me the Microsoft ergonomic wireless desktop 8000 (It connects via Bluetooth not RF).

Thanks for the birthday wish.

Dude, a giant flaming goat would be sweet as hell. I had to work, but only a half day. I'm home now :D

Also, we always unwrap a present on Christmas Eve and I got diamond earrings! I've always wanted a good pair! <3
