Although it may seem like it, I have not really joined the war on Christmas. This is not shaping up to be one of my best Christmases ever, though, and I am only 1:17 into it.
One bright spot: I got an electronic Christmas card from Dr. Emer, in the Philippines. It really is sweet. And the best thing is...no paper. It is made entirely from 100% recycled electrons. Every single one of those electrons can and will be used again. And even after they have been recycled, the original spark of joy will remain.
