happy holidays.

Despite the best efforts of NORAD and the Ministerium fuer Heimatsicherheit, Santa is going to once again violate our airspace at will tonight.  Therefore, it’s high time for me to extend my holiday wishes to you good folks out there in Intertubes land.

Whatever your beliefs, and whatever you call your particular holiday at home, may it be a merry one. 

What counts is not how we pray (or whether we pray at all), what we call our holidays, what kind of songs we sing, or what kind of things we put up on our front lawns and in front of our courthouses.  What counts is how we treat each other. 

Enjoy the holidays, and take some time off to spend with your families and your friends.  The Intertubes will still be here once the gifts are unwrapped and the egg nog and rum are gone.

Happy Holidays,  everyone.

    Merry Christmas, old man. And seven days to burn before the cast-iron bitch of 2008 gets laid to rest – won’t that be a happy moment?

    Merry Christmas, in fact, to everyone. Even if you don’t believe in Christ, don’t do mas, and are allergic to turkey. Bad cess to it – you’ve got one day a year with a global right to spend it how you please. Indulge.

    The Germans have a language where they can make some awesome names for stuff. NORAD always sounded like a cold medicine. Ministerium fuer Heimatsicherheit, however, sounds serious. When you get a letter from an agency with 73 letters in its name, you know you’re in trouble.

    Best wishes to you.

    Marko, my German is a little rusty – would TSA translate to Verkehrssicherheitsdienst? Dictionary.com translates it to Transport-Sicherheitsbüro.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! Enjoy the Munchkins (Christmas hasn’t been quite the same since mine grew up).

    Actually, if you go to NORAD’s website, you’ll see that they help track Santa for kids every year. That still brings a smile to my face.

    Merry Christmas

    Jim Sullivan: This year, they had a live feed to Google Earth too, for your 3D-accelerated Santa-tracking fun.

    They didn’t have the FAA guy with his shotgun, though. Guess this year Santa didn’t lose an engine on takeoff.
