It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

17 Dec


Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

I love Christmas songs – cheesy, soppy, cheerful, sacred: I love them all.  But I’m guessing you know that by now.


Write a summary of the book you’ve always wanted to write for the back cover of its dust jacket.

A searing exposé of life at the WordPress Prompt Factory!

Visit the heart of the prompters’ office, where ideas jump straight from the bin to your email inbox.

See the agony and the ecstasy of the tough decisions that must be made so that bloggers are never left unprompted, forcing them to think for themselves.  

Relive the prompters’ early attempts: Puppies or kittens in a sack on the railway track?

Proof that prompts bloggers think are the same as those that have gone before are, in fact, not: When is it a good time to quit? prompt 302/2011 and When is it ok to quit something? prompt 245/2011 are obviously completely different because, well, the WordPress prompters say they are.

WordPress prompts: the truth, with no tooth and not a shred of proof.

What is a life well lived to you?

Plenty of love, laughter, food and enough money left when all the bills are paid to buy a box of Maltesers.  

Oh, and dafter prompts; they have all been too sensible lately.


Picture the one person in the world you really wish were reading your blog. Write her or him a letter.

Dear WordPress Prompter,

2011 was your year.  You gave us many ridiculous writing prompts which allowed me to make fun of you for twelve solid months.

This year’s crop is far too sensible and I’m having trouble poking fun at you.

Can you fix it?

Love Tilly x

Gladys as Rudolph

Did you know that Santa has thirteen reindeer?

There’s Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen.   That makes eight reindeer.  

Then, according to the song, there’s another five: Rudolph, Olive, Trey, Howe and Andy:



Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows. 

Olive the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
Trey never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then Howe the reindeer loved him
Andy shouted out with glee,
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!”
