      A Very Merry Christmas to you, Keith, and to everyone else here , and if you are not celebrating Christmas, please regard it as a wish for a nice and happy holiday.

      • Back to you, SL! And to all–warmth, sanity, laughter, and survival in this loopy world. I already had an email hate brace with a psychotic eBay seller–my heart is started…another Charm School grad.

        • God Jul , Star, hope that Santa Claus and the reindeers made it to sunny Arizona too.
          Today is Annandag Jul over here, a nice sleepy day. Our Christmas is a package of three days, the eve is the most important. Today I will assemble all the leftovers into a nice smörgåsbord. God fortsättning !

  1. I’ve been looking for Santa nothing yet but wishing everyone a safe and
    happy holiday. Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight. Going
    to watch Holiday Inn and weep when Bing Crosby sings White Christmas.

      • Kwanzaa? You mean that “pan-African” holiday created in 1966 by an African Studies college professor? (It’s true, look it up.)

        Not even 1% of the US population celebrates it, last I heard.

        The Black Power movement evidently couldn’t compete so well with “good tidings of great joy” and “peace on earth, goodwill to men.” Gee, I wonder why.

  2. Thank you for putting up with us, Keith. And most awesome blessings to you and your family. May G-d reveal Himself to you in this coming year like never before.
    _________________________________

    The fulfillment of G-d’s promise is upon us.

    Who has believed our report?
    And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
    For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
    And as a root out of dry ground.
    He has no form or comeliness;
    And when we see Him,
    There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
    He is despised and rejected by men,
    A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
    And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
    He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

    Surely He has borne our griefs
    And carried our sorrows;
    Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
    Smitten by God, and afflicted.
    But He was wounded for our transgressions,
    He was bruised for our iniquities;
    The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
    And by His stripes we are healed.
    All we like sheep have gone astray;
    We have turned, every one, to his own way;
    And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
    He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
    Yet He opened not His mouth;
    He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
    And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    So He opened not His mouth.
    He was taken from prison and from judgment,
    And who will declare His generation?
    For He was cut off from the land of the living;
    For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
    And they made His grave with the wicked—
    But with the rich at His death,
    Because He had done no violence,
    Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

    Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
    He has put Him to grief.
    When You make His soul an offering for sin,
    He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
    And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
    He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
    By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
    For He shall bear their iniquities.
    Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
    And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
    Because He poured out His soul unto death,
    And He was numbered with the transgressors,
    And He bore the sin of many,
    And made intercession for the transgressors.

    Isaiah 53

  3. Merry Xmas to Keith and my whitehousedossier “family.” hope everybody’s enjoying the day, whether you went to Mass or just watched the “Christmas Story” marathon on TBS!

  4. Ah, Christmas!

    When the Christmas Bunny bring baskets of goodies to all the good little girls and boys! Or am I getting my holidays mixed up again?

    Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate this time of year. May G-d give you peace, love and joy, and may He bless this Republic we all love and pray for daily.

    Kieth, thank you for being an island of sanity in this insane world that we have all been forced into.

  5. To Keith,…..
    A Lutheran Benediction,…

    May the Lord bless thee and keep thee,
    May the Lord make His Face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee.
    May the Lord lift up His Countenance upon thee and give thee peace.

    God Bless.

  6. Festivus for the rest of us.

    Nah, too overplayed.

    Happy Holidays.

    I refuse to be PC.

    Happy Justin-Bieber-just-announced-his-retirement Day.

    Good news, to be sure, but not as good as the Good News of a simple, heartfelt…

    Merry Christmas to all.

  7. Everyone should know about the Christmas Truce of 1914 > were in defiance of orders from on high both sides laid down their arms. GOOGLE IT!!!
    For the duration of the war, artillery bombardments were specifically ordered on Christmas Eve to prevent another Christmas truce from breaking out.
    It has been almost 100 years >>>LETS MAKE NEXT CHRISTMAS A REMBERANCE OF THIS TRUE INCIDENT OF GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.

    • QUID0, agree, it was a most amazing event. These tired men in the trenches in a ruined land singing Stille Nacht / Silent Night together. I am sure the angels sang in heaven too.
      I often wonder why no responsibility was demanded from all the commanders involved in that horrible meat grinder, World War I.
      By the way, I recommend Erich Maria Remarques excellent classic novel , ” All quiet on the Western Front”.
