      Thank you for sharing!

      Merry Christmas to you! I suppose it's warm where you live.... here it's freezing cold and we already had two feet of snow!

      stricktlydating, quite interesting and a fun. I think all languages have tongue twisters but one can enjoy only if the language is understood. There is one in Hindi 'kharak singh ke kharkane se kharkati hain khirkian, khirkion ke kharkane se kharkata hai kharak singh'. I don't know how you would pronounce it. Thanks for sharing.
