Santa with sack Welcome to the final Starlink for 2006.

We hope you'll find some helpful goodies here, though they may not be as exciting as those in Santa's sack! :-)

In this html file, we focus on the festive season. In the downloadable pdf file you'll find very diverse resources, including:

  • a communications toolkit for nonprofit organisations;
  • an EQ (Emotional Intelligence) toolkit; and
  • materials for health professionals on the treatment and prevention of youth depression.

We also wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May you have an enjoyable, relaxing festive season and may 2007 begin brightly for you.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Children with Christmas Decorations This well-known poem, alternatively titled A Visit from St. Nicholas, was written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1822.

Since that time, many people have penned alternative words or parodies. We've found two that we think Starlink readers may enjoy and turned them into downloadable pdf files for you.

The Week Before Christmas
A poem for teachers.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Where Santa faces the challenge of being politically correct!

Festive Funnies

When you stop believing in Santa Claus is when you start getting clothes for Christmas.

A sign of the times ...
As a little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa asked the usual, "And what would you like for Christmas?"
The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped: "Didn't you get my E-mail?"

And some more signs:
- Toy Store: Ho, ho, ho spoken here
- Bridal boutique: Marry Christmas
- Outside a church: The original Christmas Club
- At a department store: Big pre-Christmas sale. Come in and mangle with the crowd

To deliver his gifts in one night, Santa would have to make 822.6 visits per second, sleighing at 3,000 times the speed of sound ... At that speed, Santa and his reindeer would burst into flame instantaneously.

Q. Why is Christmas just like a day at work?
A. You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit. Laughing Girl in Santa Hat

Q. What if it had been three Wise Women instead of three Wise Men?
A. They would have asked directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole and brought practical gifts.

Q. Why do we wish people a "Merry Christmas" instead of a "Happy Christmas"?
A. The two are about the same, but with "Merry Christmas" there's an extra twinkle in the eye!
