Apparently, wayyyyy back, one of my ancestors was actually robbed of a company payroll by a trio of highwaymen who then placed him on railroad tracks. [Link to a PDF of the article]

Italian highwaymen. With revolvers. In 1904!

I love historical documents.

Blessed be,

Well, the tree is up and decorated, the presents are beneath it.... and the creche/nativity scene that my dad always insists on is arranged on a nearby table. However, in a change from most years, dad came out of the room where he was setting it up and informed us that:

The birth of baby Jesus is attended by three wise men, a cow that is smaller than the sheep, a snow globe, a snow man, a fire lizard, and a giant Easter bunny.

As my dad said, "It's a tradition. I don't know of what, but it's a tradition." Apparently, species come together from all across the galaxy to celebrate the opening of presents.

Our tree, by the way, includes the starship Defiant and a Klingon Bird-of-Prey.

And now I should go finish up one or two other things; I have a piece of writing I hope to post online tomorrow in honor of the holiday, and there be food to consume (making own herb butter = fun times).

Blessed be,
