Happy Merry!

That sorta sums up the weather right now, eh? I was counting on Michigan to deliver me some snow snow snow. Michigan is being coy this year. Not so much as a flake. *sigh*

Now I've been saving all these tasty treats for you, just in time for the day in question. If you've come to check this blog on Christmas then consider this my gift to you. Happy holidays! Or, as the Bookseller Chick puts it, Happy Merry!

First up, the ongoing debate surrounding Clement Moore's classic poem. Which book deserves to be known as THE definitive edition of A Visit From St. Nicholas? It's the Christmas Eve Cage Match, brought to you by the ever informative What Adrienne Thinks About That.

If the holiday season is placing you in close proximity with relatives you know only tangentially or that you actively avoid the rest of the whole year through, take out your Yuletide frustration on this innocent snowglobe and watch the tiny denizens scream in terror. That link actually came from Brooklyn Arden. No lie.

It's also been too durn long since I linked to a podcast, wouldn't you say? What better then than a Holiday book booktalk podcast via none other than BookTalk (the Podcast).

And if you haven't your own personal CD of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, featuring Boris Karloff, my bestest buddy Dan sends along an mp3 file for you. Enjoy it in the comfort of your own home or, better yet, alongside Gregory K's Oddaptation of the same.

I'm back on Wednesday. See ya then.

It's been raining here, alas. At least we have our books. :)

Happy and Merry to you, too, Fuse. And as a blogger, lemme just say that a link from you is a wonderful present any old day.

That snowglobe made me far happier than I think should be expected. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Oh, and to Winnie-the-Pooh too.
