Christmas Trivia: Which creatures in this picture traditionally ended up being sacrificed?
(See the answer at the bottom)

Merry Christmas, Dear Reader!

…Unless of course, you’re Jewish, in which case...

Happy Chanukah!


Or maybe you’re an African-American who’s reconnecting with what Ron Karenga characterized as their African cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study around principles that have their putative origins in what Karenga asserts are "African traditions" and "common humanist principles", in which case...

Happy Kwanzaa!


Oh! And my friend Giggles is a pagan.

Happy Solstice, Giggles, and all you other pagan pals!


Did I forget anyone? In a world of such rich and diverse cultural and religious/spiritual… uh… things, I’m sure it’s impossible to include everyone, except to say:

HAPPY WHATEVER THIS TIME OF YEAR MEANS TO YOU!


…Oh… Unless your beliefs prohibit being happy. I suppose my blanket statement wouldn’t include you. Sorry! Okay, so, let’s try this again…

WHATEVER EMOTIONAL STATE FOR WHICHEVER MEANS OF HOWEVER YOU DEEM TO MARK THIS TIME OF YEAR, I WISH THEE!


Whew! I think I nailed it that time. I must admit, though, I’m glad most of you readers just celebrate it as Christmas and Chanukah, because that’s much easier to say. ...And to write in hot glue on a stocking.

I will be celebrating the holidays at the home of my beloved. I’m going to make egg nog from scratch with bourbon and we’ll probably play Scrabble and watch the French & Saunders Christmas Special.


I’m also trying to come up with a recipe for "dessert eggs benedict". Any suggestions?

However and wherever you’re spending your December 25, remember that I think the world of you and will do everything I can to make things radder for you in the coming year.

Love,
Job

Trivia answer: All of them! Ho, ho, ho!
