Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

The things we do for "luck"

Do you do anything for luck?

For example: Throwing spilt salt over your shoulder. Saying, "good morning" to magpies. Avoiding walking under ladders? Throwing coins into plane engines .... What?

@april - I thought of you when I read this story

    Poor, grandma.
    But they came to their destination safely, right? :D
    Why nine coins? Was it her lucky number?
    To be honest, I do avoiding walking under ladders because it looks so dangerous there under.

    I'd forgotten I should say 'Morning' to magpies. Like @april I avoid walking under ladders simply out of safety concerns. I never waste salt by throwing it anywhere other than on my food.

    My grandmother always took a mistletoe if it lightning and then she made a cross mark and I had to lie with her on the bed , until the thunderstorm was done.
    I think it's also a form to be lucky, so that the lightning would not fall on the house!

    @april @mheredge I'm walking under a ladder, but first I look upstairs.

    Would you stand on a ladder when you are wearing a skirt?
