On this Christmas morn let me thank all visitors to Science Musings and wish you the best of the season. By the evidence of the Comments, you are a remarkable group of people -- wise, thoughtful, courteous. I've learned from you, and I hope in turn to have added some small pleasure to your lives. Whatever our faith or lack thereof, we can affirm together the message of the angels in the Christmas story: Peace on Earth, good will towards men.
Ten years ago, for Christmas 1995, I wrote a holiday parody for the Boston Globe. It has appeared more widely on the internet than anything else I have ever written. A bit dated now, but prophetic too. Enjoy this week's Musing.
