According to the official NORAD Santa Tracker, the jolly fatman that’s keeping our economy running is on his way!
He’s been spotting in the Pacific Rim and is headed East toward India, Europe and Africa as I post this. He’ll be here in United States and Central and South America before you know it!
Also? On a slightly more serious note?
No matter what your religious bent, please, join with me in celebrating the return of light to the world. Friday was the Winter Solstice, which is the longest night, or shortest day, of the year in our current lap around the Sun. So, every day since then has been getting a little longer, letting a bit more light back into the world. And, I don’t know about you, but I think we could use all the light we can get in the coming year.
Be kind to each other, okay?
And, Merry Christmas, everybody!
