You are so funny! The one from Poland is made from tin foil. It's about 10 inches high and I had my choice between ones exactly like it 3 inches tall or 30 inches tall. I bought it at the Polish bookstore in Paris.

Honduras is super cool. Look at the animals. Each figure is weighted by a big copper Honduras penny on the bottom. It's the most fragile of all of them. I held my breath as I unwrapped it this year.

At some point I hope I am going to pick some favorites are at least the top five. How many more countries are coming before Christmas? This is going to be difficult task! I will have lots more time now. We decided not to risk travel to north Idaho before Christmas. We will start some new traditions here with just the two of us and all the creatures. I hope the weather changes before January so at least we can meet halfway or get to Kellogg. I have never done my own Christmas dinner... off to the recipe box! lol!

Oh I have a bunch more. (laughing) One of my new blogs friends, a non-tech savvy Obama-activist French-speaking journalist in NYC is a new facebook friend. She tipped me off to the national creche convention to be held next November. boo yah. oh yeah. I'm there. It's probably in some place like Michigan or something. Instead of like San Diego, whch is where all conventions really should be held. ;)

Good luck on Christmas dinner. Eve: clam chowder, caesar salad, cheese rolls, burnt creme.

Day: prime rib, horse radish creme, potatoes au gratin, tradition kids' jello salad (some habits die hard), homemade rolls and butter, vegetable TBD and perhaps spinach salad. Chocolate cake with cinnamon and peppermint ice cream. smoked salmon and crab dip as pre-game with framboise, mulled wine and Scarlet O'Haras. We're not much, but we do know how to eat.

I can't believe we have both shared the same tradition of clam chowder for Christmas Eve. Your Christmas Day sounds much like my mom's menu. I remember when you posted that jello recipe. I have always wanted to try it. You're not much? The chows' paws slipped on the keys there. You are much and you know how to make holidays memorable for friends and family. Eat, drink and have a Merry Christmas.
