I'm dreaming of a Dinosaur Christmas
Just like those many million years ago
When feathers and scales glistened
And hatchlings listened
To the roar
of a distant Tyrannosaur

I'm dreaming of a dinosaur Christmas
and that includes pterosaurs -
of course
May you feed on herbivores -
without remorse
And may all your Christmases be filled with Dinosaurs...

Merry Mesozoic Christmas everybody!!!!

This is beautiful, and I think a dinosaur is surely more fitting heavy-duty for such a task than a reindeer! :D

Thanks a lot, Sergio - and you're so right! I think Santa was also considering the options Shantugosaurus or one of those awesome sauropods for beasts of burden, but in the end those crazy cool Santa hats on Stegosaurus' plates made all the difference!

Thanks a lot D. It's good to be among people who cherish the REAL Christmas spirit (because who would know better how to celebrate Christmas than dinosaurs. They have seen approximately 150 millions of them coming and going!

This gives me a lot of warm and fuzzy-- er, feathery-- feelings!

Okay, I admit, the stegosaurus must be really drenched with warm and fuzzy X-massy feeling in order not freeze instantaneously in the snow. On the other hand, his thermoregulatory plates are partially covered by this cute red X-mas hats, so that surely helps!

True that! If not for the dinosaurs, it would just be a another boring day!
