So, to wish you a merry climb towards longer days, a few holiday links.
I love beatonna's humour. Check out her Scrooge holiday cartoon. This is the one that made me cackle-laugh.
Delightfully, Making Light has the text of Luke 2:1–14 in many languages. I loved the English evolution from Anglo-Saxon on.
A lovely winter story by Jenn Reese.
Astronomy Picture of the Day (gorgeous, as usual): Fox Fur, a Unicorn, and a Christmas Tree.
And As Ellen Datlow says, a toast to Harold Pinter. Reading him and watching his work made me feel smarter than I am.
Happy holidays to all, whatever you do or don't celebrate.
