net problems….i’m really sorry, i’ll do my best for you to receive all your advent gifts Smile
i would like to share with you one episode of one of my favourite tv series, kommissar rex, in which the action takes place on christmas time. - Ein Engel auf vier Pfoten (An Angel on four Paws); unfortunately, i found it only in italian. but i hope you will still enjoy it Smile
some bad guys want to kidnap the son of a wealthy family, but rex, as always, solves the case Smile

this is one of my favourite christmas songs:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxJ7xOb4Bwg&feature=PlayList&p=5AA06726C756B688&index=1
emmanuel - blackmore's night

oh come oh come emmanuel
and ransome captive israel
who mourns in lonely exile here...
until the face of god appears
rejoice rejoice emmanuel
will come to thee, oh israel...

oh come thou day spring, come and cheer..
thy spirits by thine advent here
and drive away the shades of night
and pierce the clouds and bring us light
rejoice, rejoice emmanuel
will come to thee, oh israel...

lyrics from www.blackmoresnight.com/index2.htm
