Merry Christmas, everyone!

12/21/06 UPDATE: We just added a link above to a wonderful Christmas card John sent (thank you, John).
Just click on the middle of the picture to change the scene.

It’s time to say we’re throwing ourselves into the spirit of this most joyous time of the year. Right now, blogging about local politics seems so…well, so besides the point, plus we don’t want to miss a single opportunity to share the joy with family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, or anyone else who crosses our paths.

We’ll be back after the first of the year, unless some unexpected blessing befalls our fair city that we just have to say something about. Actually, an amazing one just did. An announcement was made at the last council meeting: an anonymous donor has given $15,000 to make sure children here have Christmas toys. The Norwood Health Department and the Service League are teaming up with the schools to help bring this donor’s wonderful generosity to fruition.

Before we sign off, we declare this an “open” thread between now and Christmas to share information about food, clothing, and toy drives you know about, volunteer opportunities, ways to send Christmas greetings to Norwoodians serving our country or who may be home for the holidays, special church services and events, or maybe share some of the traditions your family enjoys this time of year (Good recipes of the sweet variety are encouraged. What? Recipes on a political blog?); in short, we welcome any comments that might feed our collective Christmas spirit…we might even leave a few ourselves.

And Happy New Year, too!
