Happy Holiday from MoonOverPittsburgh

And if you have a moment, check out this darling little piece on the interaction of Hanukkah and Christmas from Jonathan Safran Foer (registration required). Highlight:

SANTA CLAUS * Santa Claus is an obese fictional being who supposedly "visits" Christian homes the night before Christmas for the alleged purpose of delivering "presents" to "children" who have been "good" the previous year. It's a bit pathetic that Christian children are fed this make-believe, instead of having a really interesting true hero like Hanukkah Harry.

And much more in that vein.

Seriously, be of good cheer, in love and prosperity.
