And To All A Good Night!

The presents are finally wrapped, and we'll be leaving tomorrow for our annual Christmas Tour de Bama. It certainly couldn't come too soon! Here are a few parting thoughts:

  • The Yellow Jacket basketball team delivers an early holiday gift: Georgia Tech beats UGA, 78-69. (The Jackets now lead the series, 100-83.)

  • In the latest installment of the Hog's Head PubCast, Travis recaps the important events that occur at Christmastime in each of the Harry Potter novels.

  • Jeff Meyers defends Christmas against uber-Reformed Scrooges.

  • Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention my new favorite piece of Yuletide trivia. Santa Claus can be controversial in certain religious quarters, but the real St. Nicholas was a very cool guy. Not only was he known for acts of kindness and charity, but (according to tradition) he was also present at the Council of Nicea -- where he punched the heresiarch Arius in the face! So awesome.

  • And on that note, Merry Christmas!
