Crimson Tide

Crimson Tide

As I recently decreed, in quite the unoriginal fashion, "There's no place like home." Beyond that, there's no feeling like having the entirety of La Familia Scribe home for Christmas Break.

Yes, I said it. The ecomium, "Christmas Break," has unfortunately gone the way of the chalkboard in our daily schoolhouse lexicon. In a forever-PC world, we commemorate "Winter Break," "Holiday Break," or just plain "Break." Some day I do believe I'll wake up, Rumpelstiltskin-style, and find out that the Powers That Be have done away with all that holiday crapola and instituted the celebration of Festivus, for the rest of us.

Or Christmahanakwanzika, if you prefer.

At any rate, these festive baubles, shining bright in San Francisco's Ghiradelli Square, put me in mind of those near and dear. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, and all that jazz.

Here's my Christmas wish for you: That you suffer no lines at the mall and that you don't have to circle for a parking space. For too long, at least. Amen to that!

We still call it Christmas Break in our neck of the woods, but The Boy has been wishing everyone Happy Chrimbus lately.
