Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to all of you!
We have a LOT to get through today! Furrst of all, tonight we light the furrst candle of Hanukkah - and that means the Humans will be scoffing loads of sufganiyot (doughnuts) and levivot or latkes (potato pancakes), all dripping with oil, which they won't share with Us, because all that oil and fried food is Bad for Felines. We hope Mummy will make it up to Us with extra Fancy Feast (mol)! Come to think of it - Fancy Feast latkes sounds like a purrty good idea, don't you think?
On Monday December 23rd, it will be eight years since Precious Princess Pixie received her angel wings. That was on Hanukkah also. If We go by the Hebrew calendar, it will actually be the day after, but We will, in any case, be thinking about sweet Pixie all through Hanukkah. Mummy always sees her beautiful face in the flickering flames of the Hanukkah lights. That's like - one candle for each year since Pixie flew away to the Rainbow Bridge. And then Mummy tells Us stories about Pixie and Possum, who created this Blog, so that We are mindful of Our Heritage.
Then, on Tuesday evening, it is Chrissymouse Eve, when many of you will be expecting a visit from Santa Claws. We hope he will bring you lots of nice purresents.
Today, of course, being Sunday, is the day when Our Furriends Dezi and RaenaBelle from Deziz World, celebrate each week with their Blest Sunday post, and effurry Chrissymouse, they send a Blessing Train all around the World.
This year, We, too, are taking part and We have added Our Own Boxcar to the Train.
Here is Our Boxcar. It has pictures of the three of Us, Trixie, Caspurr and Shimshi - and also a Hanukkah Menorah, to symbolise joy and light, and yellow roses to symbolise furriendship. We think Love and Furriendship are two of the Greatest Blessings imaginable and We are furever grateful that We have been blessed with a warm and comfortable Home, a Mummy to love Us - and all of You as furriends.
Mummy worked furry hard on this boxcar and since it includes selfies of the three of Us, We think it is an appropriate entry in both the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the wise and beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, and the Sunday Selfies blog hop hosted by the wonderful Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
Since We are taking part in more than one blog hop today, We are posting their badges and giving links to them all, and at the bottom of the page, We will post the lists, one after the other.
Now all that remains is for Us to wish all of Our furriends and their Humans, Happy Hanukkah, Meowy Chrissymouse, a Joyous Kwanzaa (We hope We haven't left anybuddies out!) and may the Great Cat in the Sky bless each and effurry one of you.
Chag Sameach - HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
