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
