  2. That’s lovely, David. Thanks for sharing it and for the link. Have a sublime Sunday. Mega hugs.

  3. David, you led me to a wonderful site–“…carving dragon tattoos on clouds that travel against the wind…” that didn’t even rhyme with Orange. 🙂
    Many hugs, and wishing you a tremendously orange week! ❤

    • I’m so glad you were rewarded with the site Marylin. I’m going to be honest and say I posted this while asleep at the wheel and was pleasantly surprised afterwards when conscious again.

    • Yes, it is a rather strange tradition maybe rather akin to stopping the devil from coming in by beating him with poetry or winning a battle of riddles with the Gollum in Lord of the Rings.This one really goes back far into probably pre-Christian traditions so we’ll never really know it’s meaning.
      I hope you and Stephen will have a Wonderful Christmas.

      • Wow!! Amazing! What a great tradition. Somehow I couldn’t stop thinking about Mr. Ed the Talking Horse!! But I digress! LOL!

        Kinda reminds me of how Rap and Hip-hop got started back in the 1970s. Really Rap music was just a battle with words. Who could rhyme the best. In the Black community we also had something called Snapping or Playing the Dozens. Now with the younger generation they hold Poetry Slams. Getting your message across with words and beats.
