Merry Christmas to all

Today again a picture from my Christmas porcelain collection.
This year the small ornaments were added. One is hanging on the tree, two I placed next to their big originals for the photo. I find them so cute ❤ ❤ ❤

Mutta niinä päivinä tapahtui, että käsky kävi ulos keisrilta Augustukselta, että kaikki maailma piti verolliseksi laskettaman

Today my Christmas gospel comes in Finnish.

From a country when I read about it I always think of a lot of snow. Snow that we won’t have at Christmas if you believe the meteorologist. Too bad, because white Christmas would be so romantic.

ויהי בימים ההם ותצא דת מאת הקיסר אוגוסטוס לספר את כל ישבי תבל׃

Today I come with Hebrew.

When I was a very little girl, I got a huge doll for Christmas. The doll was almost as big as me. She had lots of clothes and I loved to play with her.

I remember that my Mum brought this doll back to the attic after 4 weeks and next Christmas it was under the Christmas tree again. That happened for a few years.

I completely forgot until I found the doll in my photo on the internet. I don’t even know what happened to the big doll that looked exactly like the one I bought last year. Only my new one is smaller. I only remember that the doll belonged to my mum before.

For nostalgic reasons I bought this doll girl and also a boy. It is not for playing because it is very old and fragile. But every time I see this doll, I remember Christmas in my childhood ❤ ❤ ❤

อยู่มาคราวนั้น มีรับสั่งจากซีซาร์ ออกัสตัส ให้จดทะเบียนสำมะโนครัวทั่วทั้งแผ่นดิน

Today the Christmas Gospel in Thai

It amazes me every day how many languages the Bible can be found in. Is there a language in the world in which one has not translated the Bible?
I am glad that I can find my favorite passage in the Bible in so many languages.

Christmas is coming so fast now that every day you think of something new to do.

Men det skete i de dage, at en Befaling udgik fra Kejser Augustus, at al Verden skulde skrives i Mandtal.

Today I come with Danish.

My photo today has no Christmas figure or anything like that.
The reason is I simply forgot to take a picture and put the calendar just in front of my Christmas tree hehe

Factum est autem in diebus illis, exiit edictum a Cæsare Augusto ut describeretur universus orbis.

Today I have the Christmas Gospel in Latin.

A language that is still used today in so many ways: Medicine, mathematics, chemistry.

You can even hear the preaching in Latin in the church.

Even today we still use words that come from Latin and maybe we don’t even know it. Like schola = school or pictura = picture or Semper Fideles, the marines’ motto

You see, for a “dead” language, Latin is still pretty much alive.

さて,そのころ,全世界の住民登録をせよという布告が,カエサル・アウグストゥスから出た。

The Gospel of Christmas in Japanese.
Japanese is the favourite language of my godchild. This year she spent 4 months at the University of Tokyo to learn the language.
Sweetie, today is for you ❤ ❤ ❤
