12/25/2006: "Merry Christmas, to those reading blogs today"
Merry Christmas, all. It's been a great day, filled with way too much to eat (as normal) and some quality time with family. I hope you are having a wonderful day as well, whatever you are doing.
One tradition my family has is to have Christmas crackers during our holiday meal. (By "crackers" I do not mean holiday-shaped snacks, I mean the colourful tubes that go POP! when you pull them apart.) They always have a paper hat, a surprise, and a joke. The joke I got today was just so bad I have to share it:
Q: What do you call Santa's helpers?
A: Subordinate clauses.
Must go... still lots to digest, clean up, and sleep to catch up on. Merry Christmas, all!
