Some links before we get things underway. Norma had her Christmas letter. Parsnip wrote about the winter solstice (and a birthday), as well as posted a Tucson Christmas. Shelly had Christmas greetings and the latest part of a Silly Santa story. Krisztina had advice for coping with the mad rush this time of year and a few ideas for Christmas chocolate bark. And Cheryl had part five and part six of her look at Sapelo Island. Also drop in at my photoblog, where I'm marking Christmas as well.
I have today an avalanche of Christmas related pics fitting my skewered sense of humour. Enjoy... and don't drink the eggnog. Someone (we won't mention who) spiked it. Besides, it's eggnog, and you don't really want to drink that, do you?
