Last year, like much of the world, My Own True Love and I stayed home for Christmas. This year, we’re heading out to visit my family. I’m pretty excited. It’s been more than two years since I’ve seen them. (Also like much of the world, alas.)
As I have done over the last several years, I’m giving myself a holiday from blogging.* I’ll be back in January with some stories from the margins of history (I have a list!), some books you ought to read, and some glimpses of things I’m thinking about related to the new book.
In the meantime, have a merry/jolly/happy/blessed time as you celebrate the victory of light over the darkness in the tradition of your choice.
*I must admit that it feels a bit like cheating this year since I shared old posts from the archives for all of October and part of November.
