Share Your World From 12-23-19

Now that the Christmas Hubub has subsided, I am finding some time to SHARE MY WORLD. This is the blogging challenge where Melanie asks us all questions and in answering them we share our worlds. You can click the link in caps above  to see how the world has answered. My answers are below in red.

Do dogs ‘talk’ (communicate) with their own species?   (credit to Marilyn of Serendipity)   And not just on Christmas Eve, as the old legend says all animals do.   I know that Ziggy ‘speaks’ husky (apparently) even though he’s not a husky, he’s a terrier/Chihuahua mix.   The movie the other night proved it, as there were huskies in the show, and when they barked, Ziggy got excited and stared at the TV screen with his head cocked to one side, and barked at the screen.

I know my dogs talk with the Priest’s dog who lives in the yard behind us. Everytime “Buster” comes out he begins to bark and my dogs answer from their window.


Have you ever had to work on Christmas Day? Yes. Hazard of the profession I am afraid.

If someone gifts you something that you immediately loathe, do you pretend to really like it anyway or are you brutally honest about your opinion? I try never to be “brutally” honest. That almost never pays. With a gift I usually thank the giver and move on.

Which popular drink, found during the Christmas season most often, is called “milk punch?” Egg nog?

How many ghosts show up during “A Christmas Carol?” I think the right answer is four, but something tells me I may be wrong.

Are you all about the holly and jolly or more about remembering the alleged ‘true’ meaning of Christmas? Whether Christ was born in December or not is rather unimportant to me. He and His accomplishment in changing lives has become the only thing worth celebrating in the world. Everything else is quickly fading. 

Please share a memory or thought about the holiday season if you’d like, whatever kind of celebration you may observe.

  1. Thanks Joseph for Sharing Your World! I hope your Christmas celebrations were uplifting and merry! How beautiful to see the generations interacting as they are in your photo. That is a rare thing sometimes. You were correct about both the egg nog and the number of ghosts. Some folks included all the spirits in the sky as Marley showed Scrooge what it meant to be unable to help but wish to. Not all versions include that scene, so four remains the answer. Good job!
