Santa zooms in - a shot for the group 116 pictures in 2016 group - theme, 'Zoom Effect'.

 

The picture is made up of yellow roses off hubby, Christmas lights, mandarin oranges and Cellophane wrap with Santa images.

 

Taken using my Canon 400mm lens, really enjoyed having a go at this theme, great fun!

 

83. Zoom Effect - 116 in 2016

Santa Scolastica in Subiaco - auch heute noch lässt sich die einstige Schönheit des Cosmaten-Kreuzgangs erahnen.

---

You can see the former brilliance of the cloister "Chiostro dei Cosmati" until today.

These little Santa triangles were made and purchased at the Ninemile Schoolhouse Christmas market a number of years ago. The market was run by a lovely woman named Hanneke Eikema

Ippisch. Hanneke immigrated to the US after WWII where she was part of the Dutch Resistance who help find hiding places for Jewish families. At the age of 19 she, her father, and others in the resistance were captured and imprisoned. Some were executed, but Hanneke and her father were released after the war. Hanneke is the author of a number of children's books, and one titled "Sky" ( called this because that was the only thing she saw outside her cell window) about her ordeal as a teenager. Later in life, she moved to a small town outside of Missoula MT where she and her family carved and created the most beautiful wooden Christmas toys and decorations. The Christmas market always opened the day after Thanksgiving and my mother and I would go each year to pick up a few special handmade items. These simple little Santas remind me of her special family, spending time with my mother, and how my own family just loves placing these little guys around the house. (There are 13 in the collection). I see them as a family celebration and a reminder of perseverance and love. The Christmas market is no longer open as Henneke passed away at the age of 87 in 2012, but I know many of her family's special art creations are in so many homes spreading joy.

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree

For me, (mhm) I've been an awful good girl

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue

I'll wait up for you dear

Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed

Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed

Next year I could be just as good

If you'd check off my Christmas list

Santa baby, I wanna yacht and really that's not a lie

I've been an angel all year

Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight, ooh yeah

Santa honey, the one thing that I really do need, the deed

To a platinum mine

Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree

With some decorations bought at Tiffany's

I really do believe in you

Let's see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring

But I don't mean on the phone

Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa, tell me if you're really there

Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here

Next year

Santa, tell me if he really cares

'Cause I can't give it all away if he won't be here

Next year

 

Feeling Christmas all around

And I'm tryna play it cool

But it's hard to focus when I see him walking 'cross the room

"Let It Snow" is blasting out

But I won't get in the mood

I'm avoiding every mistletoe until I know

It's true love that he thinks of

So next Christmas

I'm not all alone, boy

 

Santa, tell me if you're really there

Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here

Next year

Santa, tell me if he really cares

'Cause I can't give it all away if he won't be here

Next year

 

I've been down this road before

Fell in love on Christmas night

But on New Year's Day I woke up and he wasn't by my side

Now I need someone to hold

Be my fire in the cold

But it's hard to tell if this is just a fling

Or if it's true love that he thinks of

So next Christmas

I'm not all alone, boy

 

Santa, tell me if you're really there

Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here

Next year

Santa, tell me if he really cares

'Cause I can't give it all away if he won't be here

Next year

 

Oh, I wanna have him beside me like oh-oh-oh

On the 25th by the fireplace, oh-oh-oh

But I don't want a new broken heart

This year I've got to be smart

 

Oh, baby

(Santa tell me)

If ya won't be,

(Santa tell me)

if ya won't be here!

(Santa tell me)

 

Santa, tell me if you're really there? (Santa tell me)

(If you're really there)

Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here

Next year (He won't be here next year)

Santa, tell me if he really cares? (tell me)

(Tell me babe)

'Cause I can't give it all away if he won't be here

Next year (He won't be here next year)

 

Santa, tell me if you're really there? (Tell me)

(Tell me baby)

Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here

Next year (If he won't be , If he won't be here)

Santa, tell me if he really cares? (Tell me)

(Do you care)

'Cause I can't give it all away if he won't be here (He won't be here next year)

Next year

 

Well here is a secret snap of this Santa gezzer doing an early run in practice for his busy night . First time ever for a trial run for this well traveled man in the red suit , but this is not just any year . All over the world Christmas is going to be different with all the new rules and sanitisation that goes with it , so Santa needed to find out the rules and pitfalls in each country on his round . Seems he has worked out all the adaptions he has to make route wise and to obey all the social distancing requirements . One single problem persists which he will take back to the Elves to sort out !!

Update !!

The Elves have solved the problem of how to safely eat the tasty nibbles left out for him and how to drink all those sherries or tots of the hard stuff without the virus being passed one way or another . So he now has special easy sanitise tongs and a knapsack for all those mince pies and so on , and for a slurp or two (billion) he has an endless supply of straws that are eco friendly for safe disposal !!

If any of you are out there looking for the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn , keep an eye out for him if he is still fine tuning his big trip !!

I looked out for the conjunction Sunday night but although a beautifully clear night I could not see the once in 800 year event because of too many trees and buildings around me . I did see some stunning detail on the crescent moon , a fine view of Mars in it's fiery orange and by pure chance I think it must have been the Space Station transit across the sky !!

Today and for the next few nights - heavy cloud !!!

So , this is how Santa Knows Everything - I would never have guessed , but by chance I have stumbled on Santa's Communication Hub !

Tyred of all the old messages put of the fire and sent up the chimney - they were a so and so to read , Santa has gone digital and all messages now come to him all through the year via ----

the " CAP Centre Hub Communication Stack " transmitting on ELF frequency !!

The main radio receiving mast I have since discovered for Britain is way down in the West Country , it is lashed onto the Caradon Hill Transmitter at Minions on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall .

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caradon_Hill

 

As you can see below in the first comment box , Santa is still taking messages but this time he is in his element now the sun has gone down .

Santa is on his well deserved holiday now.

But he did not leave before briefing the Easter Bunny for its duties to come ..... 😄

 

He returned to the Land of Christmas - wearing his magical fluffy FFP3mask to comply with the rules .... !!!

thank you for your comments and faves!

Santa Paula is a city in Ventura County, California, United States. Situated amidst the orchards of the fertile Santa Clara River Valley, the city advertises itself to tourists as the "Citrus Capital of the World." Santa Paula was one of the early centers of California's petroleum industry. The Union Oil Company Building, the founding headquarters of the Union Oil Company of California in 1890, now houses the California Oil Museum. The population was 29,321 at the 2010 census, up from 28,598 at the 2000 census.

The area of what today is Santa Paula was originally inhabited by the Chumash, a Native American people. In 1769, the Spanish Portola expedition, first Europeans to see inland areas of California, came down the Santa Clara River Valley from the previous night's encampment near Fillmore and camped in the vicinity of Santa Paula on August 12, near one of the creeks coming into the valley from the north (probably Santa Paula Creek). Fray Juan Crespi, a Franciscan missionary travelling with the expedition, had previously named the valley Cañada de Santa Clara. He noted that the party traveled about 9 to 10 miles (14 to 16 km) that day and camped near a large native village, which he named San Pedro Amoliano. The site of the expedition's arrival has been designated California Historical Landmark No. 727.

 

Franciscan missionaries, led by Father Junipero Serra, became active in the area after the founding of the San Buenaventura Mission and established an Asistencia; the town takes its name from the Catholic Saint Paula. Santa Paula is located on the 1843 Rancho Santa Paula y Saticoy Mexican land grant.

 

In 1872 Nathan Weston Blanchard purchased 2,700 acres (10.9 km2) and laid out the townsite. Considered the founder of the community, he planted seedling orange trees in 1874. Several small oil companies owned by Wallace Hardison, Lyman Stewart and Thomas R. Bard were combined and became the Union Oil Company in 1890.

 

In April 1911, Gaston Méliès moved his Star Film Company from San Antonio, Texas to a site just north of Santa Paula.

 

The large South Mountain Oil Field southeast of town, just across the Santa Clara River, was discovered by the Oak Ridge Oil Company in 1916, and developed methodically through the 1920s, bringing further economic diversification and growth to the area. While the field peaked in production in the 1950s, Occidental Petroleum continues to extract oil through its Vintage Production subsidiary and remains a significant local employer.

 

A 500-acre (200 ha) master-planned community of 1,500 homes is expected to expand the town significantly when it begins construction in 2016.

 

As usual in this period it's time for a Christmas themed creation and this is a cozy shelter for Santa Claus and his reindeer. Speaking of the brand new reindeer it's really cute!

The house is a typical A-frame cabin, a kind of cottage I do really like.

This is probably my last MOC for this year and I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (hoping that it will be better than 2020)

Having a wee bit of fun with Cinder, surely he would not be amused by such festive wear & surroundings.

 

If you have not read Cinders story, it is quite a remarkable one since he has been living outdoors since October 2012.

 

Take a look at his story here and maybe you too will believe in unseen angels that are protecting this little old man.
