On this day...

Whether you celebrate the birth of the progenitor of the God of your choice, rejoice at the return of the life-giving Sun, dance around an evergreen tree deep in the forest, drink brandy while watching children eschew the fruits of capitalism in favor of playing with the boxes they came in, shine the whole thing on, or do whatever it is the Hebrews do, please express a desire for Peace on Earth and Goodwill amongst Men.

A short prayer, plea, or forlorn longing for a sense of Truth and Justice on the part of the world's powermongers wouldn't be out of line either. Maniacal laughter is optional, but what you do at Grandma's dinner table is none of my business.

Merry Christmas, folks.
