Weekend Lineup
Christmas Party Time!
As some guy on Twitter once tweeted, "It's not a Christmas party until the accordion arrives!" Enjoy lots of accordion action at the 10th Annual Tomball German Christmas Market on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The cool weather will really get you rockin' around the Christmas tree! More outdoor fun in Fayetteville at a street dance on the square Saturday night with Central Texas Sounds. Cajun fun in San Antonio Saturday night with the Ca Va Bien band. It's all good, cher. Lots of parties Sunday - Red Ravens in Elgin, Liz Talley & The Dusty Spur in Houston, Travelers Orchestra in New Braunfels, Moonglow Orchestra in Schulenburg, Jerry Haisler & The Melody 5 in Seaton, and Neon Cowboys in Sweet Home. 
Check out the Special Events listing on the right side of the polkabeat home page. Cool yule stuff happening. And if you're Christmas shopping at Lakeline Mall in Austin Saturday, members of the Central Texas Accordion Association will be laying down the Christmas tunes in front of JC Penney's 2-4 pm.

One Christmas, Joe and Peter built a skating rink in the middle of a field. A shepherd leading his flock decided to take a shortcut across the rink. The sheep, however, were afraid of the ice and wouldn't cross it. Desperate, the shepherd began tugging them to the other side. "Look at that," remarked Peter to Joe, "That guy is trying to pull the wool over our ice!"
