Excellent, we'll be watching... or I will, Ian will be asleep by then, as usual! Here is some gen I pinched from the BBC site:
"Watchnight Celebration
Sunday 24 December 2006
BBC ONE Scotland, 23.25

Rosslyn Chapel, one of the main locations featured in the blockbuster book and film, The Da Vinci Code, is the setting for this year’s Watchnight Celebration.

The chapel contains one of the earliest known representations of the bagpipes - a small statue of an angel playing the bagpipes. In keeping with the surroundings, the programme features a specially written carol for bagpipes and choir. Richard Holloway introduces the celebration of Christmas and Hannah Gordon and Tom Fleming perform seasonal readings.

Favourite carols are sung by the combined choirs of Dunblane Cathedral and St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral Edinburgh and the Radio 2 Scottish Choir girl of the Year, Margaret Walker, accompanied by the Baxter Brass Ensemble, Dunblane Cathedral Handbells and piper Dougie Pincock. "

Plus the Darby Clan!

Here is the wrong Hellebore flowering early and pretending to be a Christmas Rose.
Merry Christmas to all my friends on the forum who have given me a lot of Oooohs! and Aaahs! and Tee Hees! this year.

Since I haven't yet posted to the new forum, I thought I'd start here and wish everyone a merry Christmas. The turkey is ready for the oven (Mrs Santa's province, that): Santa is currently enjoying a well earned rest with a wee dram left by the door, having eaten the mince pie also left at the door (which he had to bake himself - 12 burned and in the bin, 4 successes!). Of course our girls are too old for Santa at 18 and 20, but they don't seem to want to grow up..........
