A Merry Christmas to all!

If you don't celebrate Christmas, pick a holiday of your choice, and have a happy one!

Actually, the traditional Christmas, per the calendars for many churches, starts Dec. 25 (although in my church we start Christmas Eve) and lasts through Epiphany, January 6. That's the source of the twelve days of Christmas.

So happy Second Day of Christmas, folks! Turtle doves, anyone?
