Better late than never! Apologies for not starting on December 1st, but I've been locked out of my account. Thanks to sterling efforts from melonfool and clariman I'm now back in.

Days 1-4:
1. National Book Tokens annual guess the hidden book titles – I'm not doing so well this year only 9/20 so far - https://caboodle.nationalbooktokens.com ... hypXaqDOM8

2. Cheap Trick – I Want You For Christmas: https://youtu.be/9hVt_ZQ7xfw

3. Penguin Arcade Game – shoot the penguins with your ice cube gun: http://www.penguingames.info/penguin-arcade.php

4. John Otway – Rocking with the Reindeer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkn1hV5-ZVI

Yay! (Actually, I think I'm probably too old to get away with using that expression...)

Nice one cavebat, thought perhaps you'd given up - thank you for brightening up Advent once again!

CP :D

Was this a deliberate last-minute substitution? Or a case of synchronicity?

Either way, it's a truly apt video for today - I could have shot an almost identical one from my front door (apart from the brief sea scene, not many beaches in the Home Counties). Actually, it would all have to be shot from my front door - I'm snowed in!

...oh, and great music too :)

I've used that before, and I do try not to repeat things. But there will be something appropriate for the day.

Quick dash through Tesco and couldn't get out in time - 11 Dec is not bad though
