I am going to get this out of the way now before I forget or lose interest in writing this. Seeing as today is the Winter Solstice, it is probably a decent enough time:
Merry Christmas, Merry Yuletide, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Hanukkah or happy/merry whatever festive celebration you all partake in at this time of year.
I guess it is as good an excuse as any to give or receive gifts.
And on that note: My Amazon wishlist is available.
Oh, and a Happy New Year/Hogmanay/Other.
