Happy Christmas! ~ As they say in England

God made the Grand Canyon, but he lives in Sedona  ~  local Arizona saying

I do have to say the we entirely agree about the above quote, even though we are not a religious pair. Although we love the amazing and majestic Grand Canyon, we acknowledge that Sedona is a small step above  - it is so so beautiful! 

Needless to say we are off for our Christmas holiday trip to this magical place and it does look as pictured above. We also think that Sedona is a place that every person on the planet should visit at least once in their lifetime!

We will be returning in a few days, for a few more posts before the New Year. In the meantime we want to extend our best wishes to all our readers, new and old, friends and family, for happy and healthy festivities whatever your religious inclinations or belief systems.

Wishing we could help you all celebrate with a wonderful toast of the beverage of your choice!

Happy Christmas Everyone! ~ John & Shellie

And just in case you’re bored and don’t have enough to read while we are away ~ here are a couple of interesting multicultural holiday links (I wish I would have had time to find more):

lol - never realized saying Happy Christmas wasn't American too; have been saying it to lots of people.

Funny David -
They probably get it since you do have an English accent? But don't they look at you a bit funny...lol...

I was so completely surprised at the language difference and spent my first visits to Yorkshire not understanding a bloomin word.

Now with books, I can see where publishers have to change the languages - yes translate...
Have you noticed?

Happy Christmas!

Oops! I have been saying Merry Christmas in England all these while! I'll use the right greetings next year! :)

Shellie - Layers of Thought said...

Lol - JoV,
They forgive us Yanks so easily....

Just never ever call yourself a scrubber (a loose woman). I did in attempt to help clean up a kitchen...

They were in hysterics!

Oh, I love Sedona...I've been there twice, now; each time felt equally magical.

What a lovely photo!

I've been saying Happy Christmas and Merry New Year for years. Always thought I was being contrary, not English! Who knew? *L*

Shellie - Layers of Thought said...

Kim -
Thanks so much - I hope you had a great holiday too!


Laurel -
It was such a nice trip we had a blast, and its only a 2 hour drive. We should go every weekend. *sigh*

Yes its a great picture. I do need to credit the author (I am a bad blogger). Snagged from flickrCC.



Parrish -
So your stranded in merry old England... I am not sure why I find that sort of funny.

It has taken me quite a few years to understand the strong North Yorkshire accent... especially if they have been drinking.
Cheers Gary!


Alexia -
How fun... perhaps your mix up is due to some past life connection. *wink* But I do like being contrary (so does John - an English trait) and it also doesn't hurt if your dyslexic... like myself. So definitely a fun switch....

Thanks for the holiday wishes! It was so nice to come home and read them.
