It's a Meowy Monday, but it's also Christmas eve (which is to swedes what Christmas day is to many other religious and non-religious christmas celebrators) and I haven't got a photo that's both christmas-y and includes cats. So I went with the above illustration that I once found on one of those websites with free graphics.
The kitties here are already in full christmas spirit as they got their presents early: treats, a big saxk of extra yummy dry food and a toy for Ullegull (though of cause, all the young cats like to play with it). Actually, Uggi got his toy several days ago as a sort of pre-christmas gift and we did open one of the boxes of treats already yesterday -- but, hey, Lillejulafton is also kind of christmas.
Myself, I'll mostly be celebrating christmas today by eating christmas ham, nibbling on chocolates and homemade sweets and watch telly, I think. And perhaps bead/embroider a little and be with the kitties. We were going to have a christmas at home this year too as my dad still isn't well and didn't want to have guests over nor visit any relatives, but he was hospitalised last week and is spending christmas at the hospital. My sis went to a friend's house for a couple of hours so when she gets back it's time to have some ham and open presents. It's not as boring as it sounds, though I confess I'd love to have a christmas with at least a couple of relativs, and in a way one of the best things about christmas is the preparations (making sweets and more sweets and some baking) and the tree and all the lights, which are up until Knut at least.
There's still no snowcat here; while we did get quite some snow in the (relatively benign) snowstorm yesterday, it all melted away already during the night. There's still a little snow here and there -- like in last week's meowy monday post -- but not enough for even a skåning to call it a white christmas. So instead, here's a little vintage postcard with a snowcat.
And with that I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
May you all have a joyous and peaceful holiday with the ones you love.
