OTTAWA - Below are familiar Christmas terms and what they mean to curlers:
Advent: What you rant about when you see the same commercials time-after-time on curling broadcasts.
Baubles: What you’re doing when you play with the rock handle too much on delivery.
Bells: What you wish someone would ring when you’re 45 minutes late starting your game because of the extra end on your sheet.
Candle: What you sometimes can’t hold when playing a great team.
Carols: She’s your wife and vice in mixed and you’re not taking her advice
