Season's greetings to you all! I hope you're all snug by your fires (wood-burning or gas or electric), with your hot beverages and tartan blankets and loved ones. If snow isn't falling outside where you are, well, use your imagination. It's the Christmas issue, after all, so I'm determined to get in the spirit.
In keeping with years of tradition, we offer you all the entrants in our Christmas Poetry Competition this week. There are nine traditional Christmas poems and two Vogon Christmas poems for you to read and vote on — we'll accept one vote per person per category, and authors may not vote for their own submissions. The rest of the details are found on the relevant page below, and the winners will be showcased in the New Year.
All that being said, I wish you a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, a pleasant Kwanzaa, a joyous Solstice and best wishes for whatever other holidays you may choose to celebrate. May there be peace on Earth in the coming year and I'll see you all in 2007!
I will just endorse all that EMR has written and, as with every headmaster at the end of term, give out a few final notices for the year 2006.
First, apologies from Clive for the lack of the h2g2 Storytime III series this week. He is without computer at the moment but promises that the popular serial will return with a bang in the New Year.
Next, a reminder that the next edition will be due out on 11th January not, as previously mentioned, the 4th. This gives everyone an extra week to come up with their excellent copy for the first Post of 2007 - deadline on Sunday 7th January.
Finally, we wave and blow a kiss to Jimster/Smij who is leaving the h2g2 italics after almost 5 years. Although not surviving quite as long as this publication, he has supported us throughout his time in one of the hot seats and even found time to submit some pretty fine cartoons. What better way for him to sign off, therefore, than with one final drawing and by poking a little fun at himself in the process.
