Silent Night, Arabian Style!

Posted by +Bellydancingbarbie on December 6th, 2011

Time truly does fly when you’re having fun!.. It’s December again and as some of you will already know, I love this time of year for it’s magic and it’s sparkle.

…The frost that covers the ground like a million shimmering diamonds glittering in the moonlight, the crisp air as it fills your lungs and makes you feel fresh & alive. Of an evening, enjoying candle light with its warming ambient glow and the scent of cinnamon, cloves and clementines as you buckle up your boots & sweep through the room tossing your favourite long scarf over one shoulder, heading out to meet friends and family for showers of celebratory cheer! Anytime you stay in feels comfy and everytime you go out feels like an adventure…

Whilst I, like many others, believe in my own inner strength and spirituality I still enjoy many of the things traditionally associated with Christmas. Songs like this for example…

Silent night, holy night,

All is calm, all is bright

Round yon virgin, mother and child, holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace

or in Arabic…

Li-Laton thick-ru-ha,

Khalidon Wa-atheem

Ith taja-lat lil-wara, nematu-rabbil karim

Fee wajil massi-ih, muf-taddil atheem

Apparently the Christmas holiday has its roots in the middle east and whilst the area is now largely Islamic, Christianity exists, hence the translated hymns!

I’m providing Belly Dance entertainment at a number of events over the coming weeks and also planning lots of recreational excitement (and a little chill out) over the sparkle season too, including a fabulous party night for all of us BDB girls, more on that very soon…

Add some sparkle to your life!
