Rather than busy my day with a dozen posts trying to sound meaningful for the holiday, I have taken the time to create one, on the web log, and referred everyone to it. It is post #32: Celebrating Christmas, talking about why we celebrate December 25th. I hope it brightens your holy day.
I have also uploaded the next chapter of Verse Three, Chapter One: The First Multiverser Novel; Chapter 41, Hastings 15, in which Lauren meets a girl named Bethany, in the strangest of meetings in the strangest of circumstances. This happens to be one of the longer chapters, so you have something to do on your holiday if nothing else requires your attention.
