Seek a healthy, upturn festival cultural flavor and a warm and affectionate human kindness.
That's Unforeseen Contingencies' wish to all our readers for the Christmas holiday.
OK, actually we cribbed this from a PRC government website that showcases China for foreigners. We came across the site while looking for photos of Friedrich von Wieser. (They have one, for reasons that are not entirely clear to me.)
They also had this rather unsettling article about Christmas for convicts in Chinese prisons. (You might need to fiddle with the sidescroll bar at the bottom of the page to get the articles.)
Regardless, we wish all our readers a Merry Christmas, Western and Orthodox, as well as a happy Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Saturnalia, Solstice, and any other winter holidays we've overlooked.
The real Santa!
