Best Santa: Santa is sitting on the Moon, holding a fishing line with a star on the end.  I think it's meant to mean "When You Fish Upon A Star", but I may be wrong.

BEST CARD: as is often the case, goes to my dear friend Moll, for this (enlarge to appreciate):

  1. Home made cards are the best. My weirdest card this year...an oil tanker somewhere off Iraq.

  3. I always keep a list of who has sent Christmas cards but never thought of doing an audit - I'll have to get them out of the recycling bag and do it! I think maybe we have too much time on our hands at this time of year, wouldn't you say?

    What a very strange card, Rosie!
