Felices Pascuas y próspero Año Nuevo

“¿Quiénes fueron los primeros en exclamar Navidad?
Pues ocurrió que todos eran animales.”

And then they heard the angels tell
“Who were the first to cry Nowell?
Animals all, as it befell,
In the stable were they did dwell!
Joy shall be theirs in the morning!”

Carol of the field-mice from The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame

    "Can't I?"
    "I mean about Christmas and the star and the three kings and the ox and the ass."
    "Oh yes, I believe that. It's a lovely idea."
