A Christmas story

A wonderful Christmas story about Bear and his friend Hare, and a beautiful song, too.

Una preciosa historia de Navidad de Oso y su amigo Liebre, y una preciosa canción también.

Somewhere only we know by Lily Allen
(Algún sitio que sólo nosotros conocemos)

I walked across an empty land.
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand.
I felt the earth beneath my feet,
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting tired and I need something to rely on.

I came across a fallen tree,
I felt the branches of it looking at me.
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting tired and I need something to rely on.

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything.
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?


Did you Know...?

To start this week before Christmas, here are some facts I bet you didn't know -at least I didn't some of them.

Para empezar esta semana antes de Navidad, aquí van unos datos que, apuesto, no conocíais. Por lo menos yo algunos, no. 

Christmas Carol

I wish you all nice holidays. Here is the only Christmas song that has managed to hit #1 on the pop charts (in 1958):  The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late) 

Para todos felices vacaciones. Os dejo con la única canción de Navidad que haya alcanzado el número uno en la lista de ventas (en 1958): "La canción de las Ardillas (No tardes Navidad)".


— All right you Chipmunks, ready to sing your song?
— I'll say we are, yeah Let's sing it now.
— Okay, Simon?
— Okay.
— Okay, Theodore?
— Okay.
— Okay, Alvin? Alvin? Alvin!
— Okay!

Christmas, Christmas time is near. 
Time for toys and time for cheer. 
We've been good but we can't last, 
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast. 
Want a plane that loops the loop, 
Me, I want a hula hoop. 
We can hardly stand the wait. 
Please Christmas, don't be late.

— Okay fellas, get ready. That was very good, Simon.
— Naturally.
— Very good Theodore.
— Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it. Ah, Alvin, Alvin!
— Okay!

Want a plane that loops the loop. 
I still want a hula hoop. 
We can hardly stand the wait, 
Please Christmas, don't be late. 
We can hardly stand the wait, 
Please Christmas, don't be late

— Very good, boys
— Let's sing it again, yeah, lets sing it again.
— No, That's enough, lets not overdo it
— What do you mean overdo it?
— We want to sing it agai.
— Now wait a minute, boys.
— Why can't we sing it again?
— Alvin, cut that ou. Theodore, just a minute. Simon will you cut that out, boys!

Merry Christmas Everybody!
