The evergreen gift of giving

Posted in Things We Love“In New York, the Jews go to eat in Chinatown on Christmas day. In LA, they go to your house”, commented my friend Shalit when I invited her, like every year, to my Christmas lunch. I paused for a second and I realized that, indeed, every single person around my holiday table, except me, will be Jewish. Jews for Christmas, I call them, a coterie of friends and family who like to indulge my need for Christmas and gifts under the tree.

The tree, by the way, is always set up by me with help from the dogs, now veterans of this yearly routine. They even learnt not to touch the ornaments, although I do not trust to leave the gifts, after Portia, on her first Christmas, ate most of them and their wrappings.

Genius in a spraycan.

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!
Lewis Carol

Sheffield-based street artist Phlegm created this jaw-dropping mural in Oslo as part of an art festival focusing on urban graffiti and street art. This Crocodile, apparently getting a little dental attention, was one of many images that appeared randomly throughout the Norway’s capital city. Organisers are planning to move the festival to a different city each year … so keep an eye on walls near you.
