So, I was about to start off this post with, “Well, it’s that time of year again…,” but then I took a look at what I wrote on this occasion last year — namely the last post before I mostly disappear into family holiday celebrations for a bunch of days — only to find that a year ago I started my post with, “Well, it’s that time of year again…”
While today is not Christmas Eve, with a weekend gloriously placed between now and the holiday, a whole lot of fun is lined up, fun that will largely keep me away from the computer and therefore away from Fish & Bicycles, for as long as a week.
But dear readers, do not despair! I will be reviving an Out of Office idea from this past summer, the Best of Fish & Bicycles series, whereby, while I’m gone, a favorite post of mine from the archives will be reposted each day.
Oh, I might sneak in a new post here and there, but it’s fun digging through the archives, so I hope you don’t mind indulging me.
And so, I wish everyone who comes across this post very Happy Holidays, a retroactive shout out to my Jewish homies for Chanukah, Solstice today, Christmas on Tuesday, Kwanzaa all next week, the New Year, Mawlid an-Nabi later in January, and any other holidays I’ve left out!
