Happy Non-Denominational Winter Festival!

Miss von Brandenburg notes that it was Christmas yesterday, wot with her being a FOREIGN Heathen an' t'ing.  I expect disgraced former International Development Secretary Piggi Patel's deport-o-bots will shortly be using this as a reason to revoke her BRITISH citizenship and ship her off to the Fatherland asap, together with her small wooden pyramids that revolve by candle-power.

And I got up at 5:15 to have breakfast, so I can get a ride in before the festivities start.

Happy Christmas all

I don’t know Germans who eat carp. We had Bratwurst with Rotkohl yesterday but they often have potato salad.

More Eastern Europe I think. Poland, Czech rep and Slovakia.  Local fishmonger used to get it in for the Poles at Xmas.

I once had carp in a restaurant in France. It was really good. Smoked carp as a starter, then main was carp fillet stuffed with almonds and served in a cream based sauce.

Aye, Merry Christmas, all.  The French had their réveillon last night, which is also an after-midnight effort with an XS of grub & drink, so the streets are dead quiet this morning apart from the odd hardy soul battling the hangover/dyspepsia with fresh O2 & drizzle.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Happy Christmas everybody! We're staying with daughter for the duration so got woked by 2 year old granddaughter at some ungodly hour. Still, at least I'm not on cooking duties.

Tigs (8 year old ginger cat) decided to transform into a kitten at 4.45am, chewing my feet and charging up and down the stairs.  He's stoned on catnip now.

Merry Christmas all,

I can beat that 4:45, with no 1 son having a 2am seizure and then sitting laughing his head off while Mrs ED tried to give him a drink.

Nope.  You can stay in bed all day if you wish. 

We're both in various stages of winter cold / flu / undetected covid.  I am at day 10 and mllePB at day 5.  The tests consistently show negative for covid but we haven't been taking any chances.

Christmas Day has been postponed for a week.

Carp is a traditional dish in southern Alsace, sliced between the vertebrae and deep-fried in batter. Billions of bloody bones and litres of grease.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Neither carp nor turkey have been consumed here. But lots of other stuff has.
