Weekly roundup: celebrating the season

Welcome to another installment of the weekly roundup we all know and love: Friday potluck! This week we're toasting the holidays, because, after all, isn't this potluck season?

Whether you're celebrating Christmas, the solstice, Hanukkah, the end of the semester, or just the completion of a successful year, I wish you Happy Holidays.

Oh, how I love a creative Christmas tree...
... and these three look like they were decorated just for me!

Holiday humor

If you haven't seen You might be a runner if... (2012 holiday edition), you should...

And if you haven't read XLMIC's Jingle Bell Hell race recap, you should read that, too.

Kyria's Twelve (running) Days of Christmas reprise is pretty funny, too. She's right. Nobody wants a partridge in a pear tree.

Quote of the week:
"The holiday season is a time for storytelling, and whether you are hearing the story of a candelabra staying lit for more than a week, or a baby born in a barn without proper medical supervision, these stories often feature miracles. Miracles are like pimples, because once you start looking for them you find more than you ever dreamed you'd see, and this holiday story features any number of miracles, depending on your point of view."
Lemony Snicket, The Lump of Coal

Happy Holidays, friends!
