Have a peaceful Christmas!

Merry is good. Peaceful (not necessarily “quiet”) is better. I hope that whatever your faith, you’re with people you love this Christmas & that you’re all appreciating each other.

How happy am I to be celebrating the birth of Christ? Happy enough to be in the choir for Midnight Mass tonight. That’s a triumph of joy over skill.

By the way, I want something for Christmas: would someone please write a song that answers “Santa Baby”? You want to strike a blow for culture, here’s your chance. It has to be funny, catchy, and somehow incorporate The Meaning of Christmas. (Think Linus.)

Here’s to life, today & always.
