    It’s all in “the look”.

    A poem from an Austrian, who is not good in English, perhaps some will understand it!

    When the snow falls wunderbar
    and the children happy are,
    when the Glatteis on the street,
    and we all a Glühwein need,
    then you know, es ist soweit:
    she is here, the Weihnachtszeit.

    Every Parkhaus is besetzt,
    weil die people fahren jetzt
    all to Kaufhof Mediamarkt,
    kriegen nearly Herzinfarkt.
    Shopping hirnverbrannte things
    and the Christmasglocke rings.

    Mother in the kitchen bakes
    Schoko-, Nuss- und Mandelkeks
    Daddy in the Nebenraum
    schmücks a Riesen-Weihnachtsbaum
    he is hanging auf the balls,
    than he from the Leiter falls…

    Finally the Kinderlein
    to the Zimmer kommen rein
    and es sings the family
    schauerlich:“Oh, Christmastree!”
    And the jeder in the house
    is packing die Geschenke aus.

    Mama finds under the Tanne
    eine brandnew Teflon-Pfanne,
    Papa gets a Schlips and Socken,
    everybody does frohlocken.
    President speaks in TV,
    all around is Harmonie,

    bis mother in the kitchen runs:
    Im Ofen burns the Weihnachtsgans,
    and so comes die Feuerwehr
    with Tatü, tata daher,
    and they bring a long, long Schlauch
    an a long, long Leiter auch,
    and they schrei -“Wasser marsch!”,
    Christmas is – now im – Eimer….

    Merry Christmas, merry Christmas,
    hear the music, see the lights,
    frohe Weihnacht, frohe Weihnacht,
    merry Christmas allerseits….

    Calvin, you’re six years old, and you mean to say you’re JUST discovering this???

    You can, Calvin…“when you have your own place and pay your own bills.” And I quote, from all moms everywhere.

    “We’ll see”. would do the trick too.

    My mom would always say when I asked how she could know I was guilty as accused: it is clearly written on your forehead.

    I felt pretty special that we were allowed to have pierced ears.

    Perhaps the ability is with the reader rather than the sender?
