Santa Claus was good to me — lots of books, bottles of alcohol-containing beverages, gift certificates to Home Depot, tools, home-made candy, and other wonders. I'll be posting on several of the books, since they have to do with products and people. But first I have to read them. And I think Christmas trees are a good product, independently of one's religion.
Also Christmas provides an always-satisfying gathering of the clan, as can be seen below.
