Now, this just makes me want to think of stuff for some of my favorite christmas songs you missed, like Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer, Deck the Halls, The Holly and the Ivy, The Holly She Bears Berry, Silent Night, Three Ships, Do You Hear What I Hear?, Feliz Novidad, Un Flambeau Janette, Isabella, Il Est NĂ©, Good King Winceslas, Angels We Have Heard on High, Here We Go a Wassailing, We Wish You a Merry Christmas...

Oh lord... Now the innerknitter wants to take the month of november off to do nothing but knit...

Hmm. Gaidig, you have something there. Rudolf's nose is probably red with cold, so a ski mask would work. And Good King Wenceslas has bad weather, so any warm outerwear would be good.

And the halls probably could use some table runners too. Or placemats. Or rugs.
