The Christmas Alphabet



While the Playfriends are off partying, they're going to turn you loose in the playground with a Christmas alphabet game. I'll start with the first letter and y'all take it from there. One letter per comment, but no limit on the number of times you can comment.

Let's see how many times we can go through the alphabet.


A is for Angel.

Now it's your turn.


P.S. Problem Child and Instigator are donating a book each as prizes. The winners will be the most unique Christmas-related word. Or as PC put it "the one that sends us all running for the dictionary kind of thing." Somehow that kinda leaves me with a nervous feeling. :grin:
