Ah, my favourite time of the year, when I can see the wide array of "No peeking" messages. llizard has done a great job this year with them. :bravo:

(I can't resist checking them all, in case there's been a slip-up somewhere.) :lalala:

For llizard's eyes only: Little problem with Dec 25. If you're not llizard and you're still reading this after I said not to, I click my tongue at you, tsk tsk.

Augh!!! I've only just put it up there and you've ALREADY found it?? Yikes! (Of course, I haven't finished it yet... I was too busy adding the "no peeking" messages.)


Thanks, blm, for the tip. I believe it's fixed now. (hope so, I'm gone from the computer until Sunday - the 1st day of Advent)

Thanks llizard! I like the flaming candles. I tried to guess the name of the Dec 4 image, but gave up. BTW, is it only on my computer? -- I see some kind of gliche in the animated part of your advent candle image -- A tiny vertical line is flickering on the left side of the flame.

Well, rats. It wasn't just your computer, CAM. Thanks for telling me. It's fixed now... :hohoho:

I'm sure it will become clear as you see more pictures. (At least I hope so!)

I was amazed that I guessed the Dec 4 name correctly, but I am stuck on Dec 5. Augh.

I was astonished at the accuracy of the image of the Beehive corn syrup! I finally guessed the December 4 word,

December 7: Oh, now, really, llizard, isn't that cheating?

By the way, the St. Nicholas Day diplomatic crisis with the Dutch was resolved beautifully with your suggesting polishing the remaining shoes ready to receive chocolate.

The eyes brightened, and the ears almost visibly perked up.... "Chocolate, did you say?..."

Those Concerned welcomed the idea of creating a tradition of shoe sorting with the promise of chocolate next year. Thank you, llizard!

Glad to hear that the St.Nicholas Day shoe sorting and chocolate filling project is agreeable. I really must remember to implement it here too.

I don't think I've cheated... :lalala:

(looking again to make sure...)

Nope. Not me. :hohoho: :jump: :hohoho:

But I still haven't figured out all the words yet to come. Still stumped by 14, 15, 17, 21 and 22.

I hope llizard doesn't mind us trying to peek ahead by guessing the future words. I don't think so, though. Surely we deserve a peeking-reward after being regularly foiled from peeking ahead at the pictures.

I don't mind people trying to peek ahead. I just hope for your sakes that Santa doesn't mind... :ohoh:

I'm so proud of myself!! I've finished all the images and uploaded everything in record time - I just finished the Christmas Day image today.

(I hope I haven't made any mistakes for you types who like to try peeking ahead in advanced ways...)

Heh heh heh - I hope you have. (Hmm, where's the "heh heh heh" icon ...) :lalala:

(Isn't the English word "I" unfortunate? It's so difficult to emphasize it.)
