    Christmas/Winter header image

    In a month, we hit December, which contains the official beginning of winter and, of course, Christmas. I want to get an appropriate seasonal image up in the first week or two.

    Another perspective on Christmas

    Saw this column in the Globe today (well, it was published yesterday but I read it today) and thought WC2 might enjoy it. It's a Muslim who grew up in Canada reflecting on Christmas and how he sees it in his spiritual and cultural context. I’m Muslim, and the Christmas spirit moves me It...

    Christmas Day Suggestions

    I need to figure things out for sure, but it looks like we will be coming home Christmas Day. I'm feeling annoyed, as I have always said no travel on the 24th and 25th (between houses is one thing, between cities is not my idea of a good Christmas Day).

    Christmas Music 2017

    One month today is Boxing Day, so I think it's safe to get the annual WonderChristmas music thread going.
