Merry Christmas (and Happy Epiphany)

As some, perhaps most, of you may know, Christmas is not just one day. According to tradition, and to the Catholic and Anglican church calendars (maybe other calendars, too, but I'm Anglican, so that's what I know), Christmas is a twelve day season that only STARTS with Christmas Day - December 25. Hence that famous obnoxious song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Christmas ends when Epiphany arrives on Jan. 6. Epiphany is the celebration of the arrival of the three astrologers to Bethlehem.

So, my friends, it is with joy and glee that I take this last opportunity to wish you all one last

Merry Christmas!!!
