With the blitz of retailers trying to “make up” for the shortened holiday season, let’s hope that by the time you read this, you’re done with all your shopping and are somewhere safe and away from the throngs, enjoying the company of whomever you choose (or not) while celebrating in moderation.

And as you should each and every day, be grateful for what you have, spare what you don’t need to those who do, and just be kind to others (even if they’re related to you ;-)

Spike 2011 XmasAs you read this, I wish that you are where you want to be, gone where you need to go, and done all you wanted to do in preparation for the celebration of your holiday of choice.

Enjoy your food, friends, and family and be grateful for what you have for there are those that have only some or none of those things.

And in the immortal words of William Shatner: “Don’t drink and drive — do one or the other.”

Whatever your felicitation — Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Festivus — please make it safe, healthful, and enjoyable for you and yours across the Natmosphere. It’s been an eventful week, if not an interesting year, and a pleasure to use my profession to share my passion with all of you in 2011.
