    Hi Kathy,

    A mixed response from me this time …

    I had no idea about a ‘kinara’.

    I knew the true meaning of ‘nativity’.

    I have come across ‘dreidel’ before but didn’t really know what it was, as I have only ever heard it sung in a song about Hanukkah, by the Christmas choir in the US pavilion in Epcot, Florida!

    Nice festive selection and I wish you and yours Seasons Greetings 🙂

    Wonderful holiday words. And don’t forget one of my favorites: Jólabókaflóð. I did a post about this one in 2018.

      Hi Deb,

      I love the notion of a ‘Christmas Book Flood’, what a lovely word 🙂

      Checking out some of the great online book deals this Christmas period, I might yet end up with a book flood all of my own … I really must resist, but it is so hard!!

      Enjoy the rest of your Christmas celebrations 🙂
