Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, あけましておめでとう、etc.
I hope everyone had a good holiday season, and that if you lost power (like I did), it wasn’t out for too long.

Why don’t they ever have a favorite book that other people actually like?
Reagan and Bush bios are pandering, and Steele said one book and then quoted the opening like to another.
