A Christmas poem called "A visit from St. Nick" ...'Twas the night before Christmas...
Dec 24 2014 3 mins  
You can see Parmy's great artwork for this poem here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZqTu-gzUSs And this is the poem: A Visit from St. Nicholas BY 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds; While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap, When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave a lustre of midday to objects below, When what to my wondering eyes did appear, But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny rein-deer, With a little old driver so lively and quick, I knew in a moment he must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name: "Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!" As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky; So up to the housetop the coursers they flew With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too— And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack. His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples, how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow; The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a broad face and a little round belly That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight— “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

LME Newsletter AUDIO 1: Labor Day in the USA
Sep 02 2013 5 mins  
Labor Day is also known as the workingman’s holiday. It’s a tradition that celebrates workers’ rights. It’s a day dedicated to giving workers some well-deserved respect and appreciation for their contributions to the economic and industrial base. Labor Day is celebrated every first Monday of September in the US and is a great time for everyone. This nationwide holiday is getting more exciting every year as families celebrate this “last holiday of the summer”! Also, almost 75% of these workers are receiving paid holiday time which makes the celebration even better. How did it Happen The very first Labor Day happened on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. It was only in 1884 that it became the first Monday of September. The Central Labor Union asked other organizations in other cities to celebrate Labor Day on the same date. The idea of the workingmen’s holiday spread as the growth of labor organizations increased and in 1885, different companies around the states adopted the idea of celebrating the holiday. Happenings on Labor Day For this day to be different and special for workers, there are various programs and activities that are made only for this day. ● Parties – parties are just everywhere – pool parties, street parties, beach parties, lounge parties and even parties in night clubs. Well-known singers and musicians are usually invited to heat up the celebration. There are plenty of venues to choose from, it just depends on your music taste. ● Shopping Discounts – almost all stores are showing “shop ‘til you drop” madness sales during Labor Day. This is the perfect time to indulge yourself. However, make sure to write down a list of what you need so you don’t go overboard with your budget. ● Picnics, Running Activities and Shows – this can be the perfect time for families to bond and have fun. Usually, they will celebrate it through picnics, joining fun runs or watching live performances of their favorite actors, musicians, magicians, etc! ● Parades and Speeches – Parades and speeches come hand-in-hand during Labor Day. Certain parades take place around the city while politicians and other well-known individuals give speeches to extend their gratitude to the workforce. ● Camping – campgrounds all around the US are filled with campers. To avoid the hassle, why not consider doing it in your own backyard? Set up a tent and a camp fire for the entire family to enjoy. You can even invite friends over! ● Exhibits and History Lessons – exhibits are available all over the place. This can be a great time to learn additional details about history while having fun. Entertaining games and activities await vacationers with their families in these exhibits. Labor Day is for hard working individuals like you to enjoy so don’t waste it. Participate in different activities and programs that might interest you. This is also a hint that summer season is about to end, so this might be your last chance to have that well-deserved vacation. Labor Day is a holiday that everyone must enjoy, it happens only once a year so maximize the excitement!
