If You are perspicacious enough You will most likely wriggle Your eyebrows a little with the appearance of this post since my normal routine in the day does not allow for composing storytelling treats so early on, however, it is CHRISTMAS EVE and there is plenty to be done so before I am flamboyantly swept off my feet I thought I would launch into the virtual world and provide a moist slice of sweet enchantment before I disappear! Of course, I shall endeavour to make a brief entrance tomorrow – the surprise finale to the CHRISTMAS PUZZLE BOX for which I advise that You prepare tonight by recruiting a notepad and pencil to Your side. Your Jedi Mind tricks are sadly futile against my leather-bound cognitive defences, You cannot extract what I have in store for You, only I shall add that You must adopt patience for the meanwhile, without chiselling through those nails that have already fallen prey to gnawed and bitten bombardments by Your anxious teeth! Giggle, giggle!
A jolly splendiferous LIGHT phenomenon is to sign its way through the evening skies tonight over my house and the surrounding counties in the South of England! At approximately 5.21pm (GMT) a fatty-bombatty chap by the name of Santa Claus shall be whizzing through the twilight firmament with the trusty help of his team of smiling Rain-Dears – sorry – Rein Deers, and You’d be unforgivably dull in the head if You had not a clue in the world as to what such a bubbly chap would be doing up there, on top of the roof of the planet!
Why, he is on course to deliver presents to all the children of the world!
I cannot wait to receive mine, and something tells me that like every year he has packed a nice hard-back edition of a classic novel under my name! Oh, how very exciting indeed! ♥
But, underlying such magical feats of Light in the skies there is also a more let us say ‘grown-up’ explanation for what we are to witness tonight. A little something called ‘The International Space Station’ has been announced by NASA for a scheduled fly-over the Southern shires of England, so all the big people around me shall be pointing to the skies and exclaiming highly realistic comments along the lines of, “Just look at that, there goes Mr Tim Peake and his astronaut crew and I bet they are missing their families”, or “Such a huge piece of metal and it only looks like a pin-point scudding along at snail speed!”
On the contrary, the little people – especially Hobbits and children – shan’t be shackled indoors, instead racing out into our gardens or on the street with arms waving out to the indigo cloak of the night, shouting and screaming in smiling and joyful and exuberant ecstasy, “SANTA, SANTA!! Oh my God, it’s SANTA!” You know me all too well, yes, that is exactly how my scripted madness shall unfold tonight! Giggle, giggle!
And, when I see that skimming Light of his beautiful sleigh tonight, in undaunted adventuress panache, my eyes shall be in prayer towards that horizon to the South as it was once so for a certain Skywalker, and after a still pause I will say to that red-coated chap so far, far away, “To go to the North Pole and to sit by the trinkets and toys and gold-kissed colours of your humble wooden workshop, now that would be an awfully big adventure…” ♥♥♥
A Merry Christmas Eve to You, my Dearest Reader!
A twinkle in the sky, Mazzy Hobbit xxx
