Christmas... the winter of our discontent.

Is it just me, or is this the moodiest Christmas in recent memory?

It just feels like things are just not quite right this year, and I'm at a loss to explain why. There is a vague unease, and it seems to be effecting not only my life, but my entire friends list.

I was watching TV news for a sec... bad habit. Kick me hard. There was a story about Bethlehem being a battlefield between Palestinians and Jews. No tourists this year, but a lot of stones and bullets... including a tiny, sick looking Christmas tree amidst the rubble, decorated with shell casings and a picture of the Virgin at the top of the tree, ripped out of a book.

I think I'll need to immerse myself in hot, steaming water for a long, long time, make a big cup of cocoa and watch "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to get over this funk. Maybe that's the problem... It's just not Christmas without Charles Schultz... (and a little Vince Guaraldi.)

At least there's some good news... Found Fayard. Rest assured, the PBS documentary will get their interview. So shines a good deed in a weary world...
