Happy Holidays!

I should probably share with you the letters the rest of the teams have written to Santa and I will. But not today.

Today I am wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy cricket loving in general. I will also share with you a secret, one that I was supposed to take to my grave but couldn't because you all deserve to know the truth.

Santa Claus is actually Jesse Ryder in a suit. So if he is stumbling through your chimney tonight and knocking on your door to ask for whiskey instead of milk, don't be surprised. But do pelt him with cricket balls on my behalf.

A very happy festive season to you Purna! P.s the teams letters to Santa were awesome...looking forward to AB's one too, but probably he doesn't believe in Santa and all this blasphemy ;)

Yeah we need the Saffa one hehe.
The people of Purnaland demand it :D

Thank you for warning me against Santa. He always appeared to be not quite kosher, as we say. Over here he comes on the 24th, not through the chimney, but rings at the door, comes in, examines the children, forces them to sing songs or recite poems, and to embarrass themselves because he knows what they did wrong during the year, and then he gives presents, or gives them a good birching! And the parents will of course stand aside and secretly giggle into their nonexistent beards.
Him being Jesse Ryder explains all this o.O The rough temper, the birch as a synonym for a clobbering bat, or a flying chair if you will... And often the parents give him a schnaps at the door, when he's leaving.
