If you want a giggle and get further into the Christmas spirit, be sure to check out Ant, Dec and Robbie Williams singing 'White Christmas'...it puts a smile on my face everytime i watch it.

Nadolig Llawen!

Btw? Did you check your memory sticks yet? Do they both work okay? I've just finished my Dolphin jigsaw - it was quite hard, but very enjoyable!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for putting The Animals of Farthing Wood on my stick! *shrieks* I will have happy listening ahead! *big wide grin* I'm delighted you like the Dolphin jigsaw! Congratulations for completing it already! It is nice when it isn't too easy as the fun is over too soon then. :)

Right, as for pronounciation, it would be much easier if you were here with me, but I'll try! I went to a site for some help as spelling phonetically is not my strong point (well, not something I've really done). Anyway, link to the site is at the end of the comment, and I've selected what to me comes the closest to how the greeting ought to be said.

Wesołych Świąt:

Vees - oy - ih shfiont

'W' is pronounced as 'V' in Polish - the letter 'V' does not appear in our language (nor does 'X' for that matter :P). The 'h' in ~vees-oy-ih~ shoud be quite audible and if this makes sense: the 'i' in the first word next to the 'h', is like the English short /i/ in still, fill and till.

As for shfiont</>b, this is the hardest. Read it as it is written and read 'ont' nasally like in French....whatever that means!

I know you are good at this lingusitic side of affairs so I hope the above gives you an idea. And when we next meet I shall pronounce the greeting for you! :)
