Ugh! Shredded Wheat

By BillRookery
Taken last month I think they might be enjoying the Shredded Wheat

Did you know that Rudolph and Santa's other reindeers might well be all girls!? Only female reindeer keep their antlers throughout winter. By Christmas time most males have discarded their antlers and are saving their energy ready to grow a new pair in the spring
Most children receive their presents on Christmas Eve night or early Christmas morning, but in some countries, they get their presents on St. Nicholas' Eve, December 5th.

St. Nicholas putting the bag of gold into a stocking is probably where the custom of having a tangerine or satsuma at the bottom of your Christmas stocking came from. If people couldn't afford gold, some golden fruit was a good replacement - and until the last 50 years, these were quite unusual fruits and so still special!

The biggest Christmas stocking was 51m 35cm (168ft 5.65in) long and 21m 63cm (70ft 11.57in) wide (from the heel to the toe). It was made the volunteer emergency services organisation Pubblica Assistenza Carrara e Sezioni (Italy) in Carrara, Tuscany, Italy, on 5th January 2011. Just think how many presents you could fit in that!

Shredded wheat not my favourite Bil but something has to eat it. They certainly seem to be keen.

As regards Christmas presents, I remember a time when children in rural parts of north east Scotland got their presents on New Year's Day. Christmas wasn't really celebrated at all.

Afraid to admit it's my favourite breakfast cereal. It would take me a while to chomp through that lot . Excellent mono composition Bill.

I have to say I hate it with a vengeance the cereal I mean.
As usual a superb image

Colour for me today Bill. Now the tangerine in the stocking. I used to put a pillow case on the end of the bed in the hopes it would be full to overflowing the next morning. Was I being greedy? I got a satsuma as well as other treats.
