International this'n'that

That ornament is on my Christmas tree, in Albuquerque. It's not new this year, but was mailed to me from Julie, in England. She got it at Tesco; I like Tesco. She sent tea, too.

Santa is based on a Saint who lived in Asia Minor, and in this felt model of the Christmas character St. Nicholas evolved into, he's riding a llama. Llamas are from the Andes mountains in South America. The ornament itself might have been made in India, or in Nepal. There are people reading this in South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia. We have subscribers on six continents. Some shop at Tesco; some might have llamas; some are celebrating Christmas.

Best wishes to all readers of Just Add Light and Stir. This is post #4,000.

  1. I want to share an e-mail response I received:

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you, and your family, too. Thank you for continuing to support unschoolers from all over the world. I love reading your Just Add Light and Stir emails every evening: they can be little rockets of energy and inspiration, or words of comfort and calm from unschooling experience. Thank you so much x

    Thanks to those who let me know you're reading! I hope next year lets us all run around more.
