Merry Christmas (+ Bonus Medieval Dance Videos)
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, and if you don’t, I hope you have a nice day anyway.
I still don’t really feel like it’s Christmas. Because the weather is very un-Christmas-like… got to talk with the cashier while getting some last-minute groceries, and she said she’d already accidentally wished someone “Happy Easter” because that’s what the weather makes her think of.
Winter jasmine is allowed to bloom in winter. Roses, however, are not. No. Just not allowed. I will sue them.
And since I’m posting random pictures, simply because I’m bored, here’s one from last year… this is how I spend a significant part of my Christmas:
I just did it again…
I complain a lot about what a lazy cat Gandalf is, but the upside of that is that he’s not very interested in the Christmas tree.
And some videos from our impromtu dancing at the Medieval Christmas Market (the sound quality is, sadly, quite terrible):
One of my favourite things about medieval dance is that whenever we’re at a fair, we can just go up to whoever is playing, talk about what they can play and what we can dance, because the chance is pretty good that there’ll be some overlap. And then we dance, even if we’re not officially on the program.
These two dances were particularly fun, because we got into a competition with the musicians about who could go faster – each of our groups won one and lost one. And earned ourselves a free drink, which we really needed, because our throats were pretty dry after dancing so fast!
