Merry Christmas!

Today we celebrate Christmas in Finland. I have a huge pile of Christmas presents waiting for me that my mom sent with me to Kristinestad, and in just a few more hours I'll get to open them all and marvel at how incredibly nice I've been this year.

I wish you all a very merry whatever-it-is-you-celebrate and hope that your day is filled with love and above all, presents. But before I leave you to go celebrate with M's family, a word of warning. Please take a moment to remember the people who train Father Christmases, and the important work they do, and please, remember these safety instructions when dealing with your Father Christmas.



  1. Merry Christmas Ziva!

    That video makes me dread what they do with Easter Bunnies (-:


    Merry Christmas Z! :-)

  3. Best Christmas videos ever! You're totally sick and warped, Ziva... I heart you!

  4. Ha! Loved those videos! Those guys are like the Monty Python of Finland, which would explain your sense of humour - not that it needs explaining.

    Enjoy your presents and Merry Christmas to you your family!

  5. These video's totally knock me out! You and M have a merry christmas and I hope Santa is good to you both!



  6. I think you know how much I loved that Father Christmas video. Brilliant!

    And I have to add that the tall dude with the long blonde hair looks exactly like a Viking is supposed to look. Imagine him showing up on your shores in a longboat with a battleaxe in hand. Terrifying. I wish I looked like that. I'm closer to Father Christmas, I'm afraid.

    Merry Christmas my most excellent friend, Ziva! I hope you get everything you want, and maybe a little more for extra measure.

  7. Merry Christmas. But I won't wish you a white one since -- well, you know.

  8. Mrsblogalot: I think Easter Bunnies are safe, they're not Finnish after all. Merry Christmas!

    Nicky: Merry Christmas honey! Here's some bleach for your eyes.

    Boom Boom: It takes a sick and warped person to enjoy a sick and warped video. Merry Christmas Boom Boom!

    00dozo: I think much of my humor can be explained by my family. We're all sick and twisted, and we like it. Merry Christmas Double-O!

    Linda: Santa was very good to us both. (But more to me, of course.) I hope Santa was good to you too and that you're having a wonderful Christmas.

    MikeWJ: I knew you'd love the videos, I thought of you when I posted them. I just have one question.. If you look like Father Christmas, does that mean that Nicky has seen you naked by proxy?

    Merry Christmas my friend, I hope you and your family have an amazing Christmas and that your kids get everything they want.

    And you, of course. I hope you get everything you want, too. Of course. And lots of booze.

    Frank: Merry Christmas! I appreciate it; that coke habit was very hard to kick.

  9. Merry Christmas, Ziva.

    I'm definitely staying away from mall Santa's. The last thing I need is to be malled.

  10. Merry Christmas, Ziva! Hope your holiday was fabulous!

  11. Merry Christams Ziva.May all your wishes to come true.(unless Santa Claus did not deal with this).
    Awesome video.

  12. Hope you're having a merry xmas holiday, Ziva! I think I need some eye bleach too after watching those videos.

  13. Reffie: Thank you!

    Lauren: Dear god, I hope you weren't malled, that sounds dangerous.

    Meleah: I had a great time, hope your Christmas was just as great!

    Rares: Merry Christmas to you too, I hope you got everything you wanted and more.

    mike: Don't be silly, you've seen worse.
