We seem to be done with Santa Claus for the year, with Rudolph and Frosty
and the whole demented and tiresome crew, who began to appear in shop
windows around the middle of October.  Of course the Christmas season, which
only began yesterday, will be with us until what those pesky secular
humanists brazenly call Groundhog Day, indeed, almost until Mardi Gras.  And
let that be my excuse for not sending my greetings out until now.

My wish for you, and for all my indulgent readers, has been published to the
world as the conclusion to some reflections inspired by the late Mr.
Emerson, to which I hereby direct your kindly attention, and invite your
(equally kindly) comments.

I rather hope that my love and admiration for old Waldo will not unduly
upset those of you who are attached to historical Christianity, and that my
own admitted attachment to what can only be called Orthodoxy (or at least
orthodoxy) will not distress the other friends and admirers of one who is no
doubt posthumously proud to be known as America's great heretic.

Here is the link:
And all the best to you and yours for the coming year.
