I have just returned from Santa Land where the End of the World scenario was met with much merriment. The above photo is from a scene in a play starring (of course) Santa, and a couple of elves in clown costume heedlessly playing with matches near our Globe while Santa tries to cool things off with an ice pak. Sparing you the political nuance I will say the photo was incorporated into my Christmas Card this year.
Incidentally, why can't I find a ringtone for my phone that plays, "The-uh fi-irst No-o-ël the-e aangels did say...")

This is the first time I have succeeded in keeping a store-bought pointsettia alive from one Christmas to the next. This one lived happily without much care on my tiny northwest-facing balcony, completely changing it's character from bushy leaved grandeur to homespun friendly: less leaves, more but smaller flowers and a cheerful acceptance of my offhand ways. Yay!
