Christmas Eve With xkcd
Alt: Family going to bed at 10 PM is so much worse than jet lag.
Many of you have probably given time, money and effort to help those in need over the last year, and because many of those people don't ever get a chance to say "thank you", please allow me. When I was little, about the time I was 8, my mother converted to become a Jehovah's Witness, so there were no more Christmases for me until I became an adult. However, one of the last Christmases we did celebrate, when I was 5 or 6, I remember that our Christmas food and gifts were given to us by some sort of charity. I have no idea what group it might have been through, but as an adult with children, I look back to that time, and I'm very appreciative of what those strangers did for my family. So, thank you to every one of you who have shared your good fortune and good will with children and families like mine was 25 years ago.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Or Happy Holidays for those of different belief. May peace be with each of you, your families and your communities.
