Joyeux Noël!

Karel McIntosh shares Caribbean: Christmas Traditions

Emily blogs Depending on your family traditions, Christmas is a day of everything from gift giving to turkey, mistletoe, egg nog, and other less-common behavior like “wrapping paper ball fights.”

Peter Kafka writes: "We didn't expect to spend part of our Christmas Day at the 5th Avenue Apple store, but we did -- and we weren't alone. This picture was taken around 1pm Tuesday, but based on the line to get into the store that we saw..."

trevor wishes Merry Christmas to you all! "I hope that you have a great holiday and spend it with your family. My prayer is that you’ll enjoy Christmas for what it really is about. Not the comericalism or the overbearing religious event..."

bcp muses "Have you ever noticed how something about Christmas music allows Christian radio stations to play secular music (eg, Jingle Bell Rock), and secular music stations to play overtly Christian music (eg, Hark the Herald Angels Sing)? ..." Jonathan Benz offers a Christmas Blessing

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas

Karmic-Dragonfly: It was a very nice Christmas, but I'm glad to be home though so I can sleep in my own bed tonight :) I mentioned that my head had been getting cold from shaving it, so I got a couple of stocking caps...

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
