Norman Rockwell, No Christmas Problem Now – Santa with a Parker Pen, 1929, © 2010  The National Museum of American Illustration and the American Illustrators Gallery.Right now, as you are reading this, the big guy is giving a final check to his naughty and nice lists.  As the story goes, nice kids get a toy and naughty kids get a lump of coal.  While that is going on at the North Pole, in homes across the world parents and families are preparing for their Christmas celebrations.

Even in this economy, even when one out of every ten workers is looking for work (it’s really more than that, but we’ll go with their numbers), even with all that, Christmas comes and people start to put aside the worries of the rest of the year.

I’m not going to get into the religious implications of Christmas.  Those are well-documented in other places.  Today, I just want to say Merry Christmas to everyone!
