For decades, Ólafur (the Icelandic president) has made sure to exercise at least 50 minutes a day. "We usually start the day with a power walk with Sámi. But I think he started eating healthier food after we met, he now eats more vegetables and less wine bread," says First Lady Dorrit Moussaieff in an interview with Fréttatímann (News Time) when she is asked about her husband's physical condit...
Skinfaxa wanted to hear how the residents of a lazy town get along. How the residents of LazyTown plan to prepare for Christmas, e.g. what they give as gifts, what they plan to eat, etc.
Sportacus: For me, Christmas is the most fun time of the year! I spend a lot of time preparing and choosing gifts for the residents of LazyTown. I usually try to give them something related to games, sports and the outdoors. Last Christmas I gave Stephanie a zip band and Pixel a basketball. Pixel is actually immersed in the computers and is still trying to figure out how to connect the basketball to him!
It’s a secret what I’m going to give Ziggy as a Christmas present now, but it starts with a foot and ends with a ball. You promise not to tell him.
There is so much to do before Christmas that you sometimes forget to exercise. I’m still good at getting the kids out to play. Also, making a snow house or a snow call is a great activity when we get enough snow. The best thing is to experience the one and only true message of Christmas with your friends and family in peace and quiet. Merry Christmas!!
And what about Stephanie?
Is she not going to a Christmas party, what is her favorite Christmas food and what would she most like to get for Christmas?
Stephanie: I’m so looking forward to Christmas! I start preparing for Christmas very early. You have to choose the Christmas dress, take out, buy presents and stuff like that. Wow, I’m really looking forward to thinking about this!
On Christmas Day, we always go to the mayor’s Christmas party. We start by dancing and singing together around the Christmas tree. Then we eat the mayor’s Christmas dinner, which Bessie actually cooks for him. The mayor still gets to peel the potatoes. Whoever gets the almond in the almond porridge gets to read the packages.
I hope Stingy doesn’t get the almond. Then everything goes crazy, because he always says that all the packages are for him!
Last time Sportacus gave me a great zip band for Christmas. I really hope I can skate now. It’s actually the most fun thing I do. Unfortunately, the old poles are too small. But now I have to go to Trixie. We are going to go to town together and choose a Christmas present for the Sports Fairy. Something healthy and good.
So this must be a very difficult time for Stingy…
Stingy: I love Christmas. To sit at the mayor’s house on Christmas Eve and have packages and more packages and more packages and more packages… yes… get one package, that is. I actually enjoy reading the packages the most. It’s so exciting to see who gets what! And of course, the most fun is reading the packages that I’m supposed to receive.
I am also very good at giving. Last year I gave twenty packages. I got nineteen and Sportacus got one. He was actually not very happy when he saw that I wasn’t going to give my friends any packages. So we went into the kitchen and repackaged some that I had given myself. Then everyone got a package in the end. I had already chosen gifts for all my friends, but when I marked them, I accidentally wrote “To Stingy from me” or “To me from Stingy”. It won’t happen again. Now I’m just going to mark them “To me from me”. Merry Christmas everyone!
Robbie Rotten must be planning to take advantage of Christmas and make some money from the Christmas celebration…
Robbie Rotten: I don’t like Christmas! Huh .. there is nothing fun this Christmas. All together eating good food, giving gifts, drinking hot chocolate and cookies. Like it’s any fun. No, now it’s much better to just be alone in peace and privacy. No food smell and paper outside of packages to confuse you. Christmas in my tree is great. I cook cocoa malt and biscuits for Christmas dinner. Then it’s time to open a package .. no otherwise. I don’t get any packages. But in other words, after I… haven’t… opened the packages, I dance around the Christmas tree… or no other way. I don’t have a Christmas tree either.
Now that I think about it, it doesn’t sound too exciting. Maybe I should go visit the mayor and try to be a little nice. Then you never know if he will invite me to their Christmas party.
