Merry Ukrainian Christmas


Happy Holidays boys and girls!

The Legend of the Christmas Spider is actually really cute.

A poor woman was living in a small hut with her children. During summer a pine tree started growing out of their dirt floor and the children tended to it so they'd have a Christmas tree in the winter. However, when Christmas came around they couldn't afford decorations, let alone food and went to bed sad and hungry. The next morning when they opened the windows the sun fell on the tree and revealed that a spider had covered it in cobwebs that glittered like gold and silver. When they looked closer they saw that it was REAL gold and silver. From that day on they always had plenty.

Just to remind you that now the Icelandic Christmas cat is lurking about and eats people who have not received any new clothes to wear before Christmas Eve

Dear Santa Humon:
Please send me a new computer monitor for Christmas, as I seem to have killed the last one with fire.

and now the spiders are going to crawl into their mouths. ah, i see one all ready has, in Denmark's mouth. Soon the spiders shall lay their eggs in them, and use their poison to "control" Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Ukraine's plan is all going together. then, he will rule the world along with the spiders. Unless of course, they all ready got to him, for that may be his hair, or it may be spider eggs. of course, t won't matter soon, for the golden age of the spiders has already begun. Soon, at least, of course.

As I assume most readers here knows, the Nordic countries traditionally celebrates the -eve of holidays, rather then the -day.
So while Christmas day is the major day in the English speaking world, we in the Nordics begin our celebration on Christmas eve - which is now about half an hour away.

The first music played on Swedish public broadcast radio after the stroke of midnight on Christmas eve is always "O holy Night" in a rendition with one of the greatest tenors of all time - who also happens to have been a Swede - Jussi Björling.

This as to mark the beginning of the three days of Christmas, which have traditionally been seen as a time of peace and rest.
I'd recommend anyone to sit back and enjoy this music at some point during Christmas. Regardless if you understand the lyrics (which are sung in Swedish) or not - this is good for the soul:
