Happy Holidays to everyone!

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

So how did everyone’s Christmas go? I hope you had a great day, and not just because of the presents!

Well here’s a cute video on Dream Studio, also posted on YingDong’s Christmas blog post, starring Keroppi, the bus driver, and many other Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty!

There really is something about Christmas isn’t there? It’s that special feeling. People are nicer, and you get smiles from people you don’t even know! I love this holiday season the most of all times of year. :)

If you’ve got Christmas stories you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to email me at happynews@hellokitty.com! :)

A Bright Red Star

Mars, the Red Planet

Mars was at the closest point to the Earth last Tuesday (December 18) for the entire 2007, and though it didn’t get as big as the moon in our night sky, it’s still an added beauty to the heavens at night.

You can see Mars as a bright red “star” in the night sky any day until 2016!

How can you find it? At nightfall, look in the east and you’ll find a really bright reddish star. You’ll know that that’s mars because it doesn’t twinkle!

I hope you like stargazing, it’s a nice way to relax, and helps us appreciate the beauty of creation. :)

A Daddy’s Birthday

Here we have one of the sweetest things I’ve read in a while. This one’s from Kittymama, one of our very prolific bloggers here in Sanriotown.

In her post called “Happy Birthday, Daddy Only!” she shares with us a nice poem about fathers, and the birthday of her own Daddy.

Curious as to why she says “Daddy Only”? Well check out her post and find out!  :)

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

I stumbled on this very sweet blog, and I just knew that I had to share it.

It’s called The Butterfly Effect by gigistone, and just a few days ago she started a blog for a very heartwarming cause.

Sometimes, even the simplest messages given at the right time could turn someone’s mood, day or life around for the better. Sometimes, no matter how bad things are going, it only takes a word of kindness, happiness or humor, to get you back on track.

And that’s the idea behind gigistone’s silent revolution. It’s a very simple, yet brilliant idea — to spread good messages through folded pieces of paper, to spread goodwill to others. So don’t forget to check out The Butterfly Effect to find out more about it and how you can take part! :)

Man Gets Lost Ring Back…Again

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

In Deerfield Massachusets, a certain John Carney was at the local waste transfer station when he noticed a gold wedding ring partially buried in the sand.

Thankfully, as most wedding rings go, it had the names of the happy couple engraved on the inside, and this one read “Ed and Linda June 9, 1996″. Carney then decided to find out whom the ring belonged to.

He searched the wedding listings at the local library, and surely enough he found an entry on Ed and Linda LaCoille on June 9, 1996.

Carney returned the ring a couple of weeks ago, but apparently, Ed LaCoille had lost the ring more than six months ago.

And it was not his first time to lose the ring either. He once lost it around a lake in Maine while on vacation, where it had been returned to him by mail a couple of weeks after.

It’s nice to know that there are people willing to go out of their way to help out someone who’s lost something as valuable and treasured as that wedding ring. I hope he never loses that ring again! :)
