Merry Merry

From the Fire Direction Center:This holiday isn't exactly my thing. But for those whose it is; may this night of yours be blissful and happy. May you be overwashed by the love of those you love around you. And may you wake to peace and content.

Great vid. This article from the UK Telegraph outline how St. Nicholas of Myra became Santa, through Thomas Nast and Coca Cola:

I love David Sedaris's Christmas Chronicles, and the harried mom yelling at her her distressed kid: "Get up on that man's lap or I'll give you something to cry about!"

He explains it as parent's way of dealing with a world they cannot control, and so creating the simulacrum of the life they'd envisioned.

Merry Christmas, dear friend.
