Joyeux Noel

'Twas in the moon of wintertime, when all the web was dead,

That mighty Pastey and his crew sent Hootoo choirs instead,

Before their wit, the 'net grew dim, and wandering surfers heard the hymn:

Go and read The Guide! Go, Read the Guide!

In litteris euphoria!
  [Bong!]

It's that time again. Stoke the fire – unless you're in the Southern Hemisphere – break out the wine, settle in to listen to carols, or tell a story, or watch your favourite holiday film. Look forward to the arrival of a mythological being, or to watching a Royal Personage give a speech, and wonder if somebody sent you some new socks in the brightly-wrapped package that's sitting under an overdressed bit of captive floral matter in your living room. Yes, h2g2er, it's Christmas again.

We're here for you. We've got lots of goodies: a puzzle, a quiz, cartoons, poems, stories, art. . .everything your heart can desire. There's even Stuff to make you think.

Sit back, enjoy. Feed the birds outside – that's what Willem and Keith are doing. Remember times of yore, and think of your neighbour, as benjaminpmoore does.

Have a laugh and a tear, on us. The best of the season to all of you, from all of us!
