Yesterday my father and I listened to traditional Puerto Rican 'Christmas' music. It's mostly sad and really wonderful. A lot of it is about independence from America, Viva Patria, Viva Revolucion! Which is always cool stuff to me, ha ha.
As I get older the idea of holidays, seems to be less about food and presents and more about spending time with people. I like that, a lot.
Here are some ironic/and or amusing Christmas headlines:
The Pope talks about selfishness and solidarity, uhmm okay.
Bush gives some Xmas gifts.
Israel is scary and both the Palestinian and the Israeli civilians are in my thoughts.
Aww, German Navy foils Somali Pirates, BUT they are immediately released! Yea!
