Share Your World 2018: 17 December


 

Sharing My World This Week

What traditional Christmas decoration is actually a parasitic plant?

Mistletoe.

Christmas decorations outside my friend Karen’s house.

Name something about this holiday season (whatever version you may celebrate) that most people like, but you dislike?

Hmm tricky as I like most things about Christmas and the ones I dislike, such as rampant commercialism, most people dislike. In fact, it seems that most people dislike Christmas these days. One thing that I do dislike that many people seem to enjoy is getting drunk at Christmas parties. Mind you that’s not a Christmas thing really. I do enjoy a drink but I don’t get more than a bit light headed. I don’t see the fun in getting blind drunk.

What’s your favorite – or least favorite –  song sung traditionally at this time of year?

I like the traditional  Carols. One of my favourites has always been “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” but I also love to hear the Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah at this time of year.

And the last one ———>  In the song “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” what “incriminating” evidence was found on Grandma’s back?

I don’t actually know this song. I have probably heard it but it’s one of those silly songs that I don’t really pay attention to.

Finally:    What would you like to share with the world, if time or cost were no object?

Peace and prosperity and the joy of Christmas that so many people seem to have lost. It makes me sad to hear so many people complaining about how much they hate this time of year.

Christmas by candlelight.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.

  1. Your wish is beautiful and I wish that too. I think, personally, that the reason so many (myself among them) don’t care for this time of year too much is the rampant commercialism and greed. Which is sort of strange if you stop and actually think about that…it’s ALWAYS been that way (I’m a big fan of “A Christmas Carol”) it was so in Dickens’ day and it’s so now. Huh. Learn something each day.. Anyway, thanks for Sharing Your Merry World with us all! 🙂 Merry Christmas!
