A Christmas message

I was trying to think of something Christmassy to say in what will probably be the last L-files post for the year (yes ok I was surfing the Web), when I came across the following little passage from Dr Seuss which seemed to somehow say something more poignant than all of the more earnest Christmas quotes...and it rhymes :)

'And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?'

Have a really great holiday season, and we'll see you next year!
