Christmas Day open thread

Gee, it's not really about things, is it?

Merry Christmas!*

NOTE * I dislike the blandness of "Happy Holidays... So if Christmas is not the holiday for you, all I can say is, enjoy your Chinese takeout doggy bag from last night!

And fill your house with lights throughout the season. By the time you take them down, the days will be getting noticeably longer. There's some sort of metaphor here for joy in the darkest times.

But gifts are appreciated regardless.

Among other things, I got Edmund Morris' two biographies about Theodore Roosevelt, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Rex. I've only just read the prologue of Rise, and I'm already hooked. I can't wait to really dive into them.

Thanksgiving was last month, but I'm always thankful for Corrente and everyone here. Wishing you the best today.

here [audio MP3], uploaded for your listening pleasure (found in this collection of Chinese Christmas songs here on Sinosplice).

It's kind of fun and tuneful for those of us whose musical tastes were arrested at about the age of 5. (Sounds like it should be emanating from an ice cream truck or something.)

I don't have any problem with "Happy Holidays" (not being Christian) but, in deference to lambert, I'll wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

Just realized I hadn't wished everyone at Corrente a Merry Christmas or a Happy Holiday as the case may be. Let's get our movement flying next year.

I should go see Up in the Air tomorrow.

Definitely want to see Daybreakers when it comes out.
