Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, as well as Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa, and to those who do not, Happy Holidays and Seasons' Greetings!

For a little holiday music infusion, here's a favoricious playlist by the one and only Mr. EJ Flavors, starting with none other than Donny Hathaway singing "This Christmas" (you can't go wrong with that!).

For a little holiday art, here's a rare New York Times treat: original fiction, by one of the finer practitioners of the short-short/microfiction/prose poetic forms: Lydia Davis. She begins: "I Know we’re supposed to be happy on this day. How odd that is. Usually I’m just nervous — probably because I’m supposed to be happy. I think about other years."
