Another winter, another Christmas day, bringing us near to the end of another year. Both Tina Hyrkas and Paul Talvensaari over in our Guest Gallery had the same idea in getting a closeup of the frost hanging onto the pine trees, on this sub-zero morning. Our way to wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas, from all of us here at Pasty Central.

Merry Christmas from Tennessee. Ours isn't as pretty as your but we do have snow and 10 degrees this morning.


By Ms Katie in Rockport Tx. on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 10:18 am:

I just came in from taking photos of our snow!!!Here in south Texas. This is on the Gulf coast! I know yoopers wouldn't be impressed with 3-4" of snow. But it's been since 1890's since last snow even near this. Will be interesting how locals are handling it. Oh well it'll be gone this afternoon. Merry Christmas to the wonderful crew that makes Pasty.com the great place that it is. And to the neat people I've met thru it. I feel like I know you all. God bless all of you in 2005.

merry christmas from the prairie


By Down State Dave on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 10:30 am:

John,mi -- are you revealing your age? I didn't know anyone had a "front room" anymore. I remember opening presents on Christmas morning in the "front room" around a blazing fire and having company over later sitting more formally in the "parlor". Now everyone seems to have a "living room" or a "family room" or a "great room". ;>)

You bring back fond memories of Christmas' past with your comment. Think I'll go sit in the "front room" and wait for the grand kids to show up.

In our SUV we'll go!"


By Skylar in Wi on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 10:45 am:

By John/Houghton on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 01:28 pm:

Merry Christmas from Houghton. Way to cold up here to leave the beer chilling on the back porch--found out the hard way!!


By Mike. MI on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 01:32 pm:

Merry Christmas to all. This is the best site on the www and I am so thankful that it continues on. I would also like to thank our service men and women for their sarifice at this time of year, and for always. Let's hope for a Happy New Year, and to borrow from Dickens: "God bless us everyone"


By Dale Chisholm, Mo on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 01:56 pm:

It's been plenty cold enough here in St Louis (Mo - not Mi) this last week but not a trace of snow! What a bleak, dreary, dreadful season - I envy your good fortune to live in the Copper Country.

On a sadder note: My Christmas mail brought word that Pastor Hilbert Zwyhuizen, who lived in Houghton approx 1950 - 1975 and pastored the University Baptist Church (now called Evangel Baptist, on College Ave) passed on last spring.


By Greg & Pam on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 02:54 pm:

Merry x-mas all!!!


By Victor P - Houston on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 03:29 pm:

Merry Christmas to all.

Merry Christmas from the "quiet" harbor. Not too many sleds zooming around yet...It's great to be able to step outside and hear nothing.Love the winter months!


By Bruce-Joni -TN on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 03:47 pm:

Alicia, Mi.

We are from Marquette and Negaunee...Have lived in Memphis area going on three years- The last name does pop up now and then down South...but when we were in either the U.P or L.P it was pretty common.. The last name was Numikoski before my Father changed it many years back..

Happy Holidays..


By Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 04:00 pm:

This morning around 10:00ish (while I was out walking my dog in -10° weather), Steve from WI and Darrell Oinas both spotted a neat Christmas morning picture of the Lift Bridge. Thanks Darrell for sending it for posting!

Christmas morning!

By Sarah, Central WI on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 04:31 pm:

May your days be merry and bright...and may all your Christmases (?!?!?!) be white!

By Steve,WI on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 05:09 pm:

Thank you Darrell for sending it in and Mary for posting it, I am limited to what I can do on my computer at work so I could not get the file small enough to post. A special Merry Christmas to all the great folks that bring us this site and allow us to see such wonders.


By elm on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 06:07 pm:

Merry Christmas one and all!


By Fran,Ga on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 07:13 pm:

John,mi your mention of your front rooom brought back many memories of Christmas's past spent in our "front room" This must be another C.C.term.

Merry Christmas to all of you out there!! It is a pleasure to be e-friends with so many of you. Thanks to all of you who make Pasty Cam avaiable to all of us!!


By DH, Temecula, CA on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 07:18 pm:

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!


By Trish on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 07:26 pm:

Merry Christmas to all from Washington, the Evergreen
State!
Could that possibly be Santa's sleigh flying across the
bridge- so fast it's a blur- in the photo?


By The Urban Escapees,MI on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 08:13 pm:

Merry Christmas everyone. Cool pic of the bridge that Darrell posted. Last night was magically beautiful, with the almost full moon out and clear starry skies. I took an evening walk in the -11 temp, almost as bright as daylight. Beautiful! Tonight is also bright, but some thin clouds out. John/Houghtons beer freezes on his back porch - our dogs water stays liquid for only a very short while inside the back porch! Know whatcha mean. Lovin' the UP winter! Happy New Year to all.


By Psmiiller on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 10:08 pm:

Hi Audrey -
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year -Greetings to
Fiona -
So much fun so write to you - enjoy all your snow

love,

Mom - Mommie misses you ;*)


By Ken ja Mimi from da UP on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 10:25 pm:

Hauskka Joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta from Cornell. (Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!) Had -13° this am, 'bout 6° now. Just a light dusting of new snow. Everybody getting ready for Heikken päivä next month in Hancock? Kilpela and Friends will be playing on Sat. evening.


By Elvira on Saturday, December 25, 2004 - 11:39 pm:

Oh Dave, you are a real piece of work. One minute you have me shoveling snow and the next you are sending me the Christmas Train with all my friends on it. (But you missed the road runner, my favorite.) And also, the presents are missing. Obviously, you did not put enough cars on that train. I like lots. :) A Special Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, and all the others who at times keep me in stitches. Your pictures are awesome. Thanks to those who are running this site for all to enjoy. ELVIRA


By Candy, CA on Sunday, December 26, 2004 - 11:46 am:

Merry Christmas a few hours late from foggy Northern California. After a few nights of heavy frost (almost snow, but not enough to shovel!), we're in for rain.

We enjoyed our pasties on Christmas eve (thanks to the hardworking elves at Still Waters) and each other all day on Christmas. Santa brought too many new computer toys for the guys for me to have any computer time myself, but I sure appreciate reading all you had to say this a.m. (hugs to you, Phyllis and Dave).

Charlie and company, your work on pasty.com lets me live away from home but still be there -- like a kite, I can fly free as long as my heart is tethered safely by loving hands. Thank you all for all your hard work and God bless you and those loving hands in the year to come!


By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, April 13, 2009 - 01:35 pm:

The pine tree is another 1 of my favorite trees, along with the maple + oak. Beautiful photos.
