    When we were travelling through Bryon Bay, NSW. We picked up a sand washed rock from the beach and left it in the car during the lunch time. That was back in 2001. Since then, as we travelled around, that one piece of rock have been with us. It has been around Australia, to parts of Asia and to parts of Europe. How coincidental is that? It must be a common thing to have a travelling object.

    Great post as it is the small details that makes it an interesting read.

      Great story about the rock. I would think it is more common to have some sort of travel totem. Even if it is a little tassle or the backpack itself.

    You know, I don’t think I ever realied they were singing “figgy pudding” in that song. I have terrible trouble understanding lyrics in all songs, though. That’s a very cool game they thought up. Sorry, I don’t have any similiar games or traditions to share with you. Call me dull.

      Not dull at all, I have read your site. There may be other versions that do not mention figgy pudding, but I remember it as the second verse.

    Love the interesting take on figgy pudding here. No, I don’t have anything like this but you know what? This is a great idea I may start doing with my family!

    I enjoy your silly posts just as much as the more serious ones. This really made me laugh, especially your explanation of the picture 🙂

      Thanks. That is actually a picture of a piece of pottery that I made in NC. I did a few things here, but haven’t found the time to do pottery as much here. Kind of miss it.
