Christmas Card


We all know that for some of us, easily depressed souls, Christmas can be a difficult time of the year.

    I reflected on this before: see my slightly over-the-top 2010 Christmas rant. I will never offend anyone in that way again!

    But whatever our personal feelings, here is the 2012 Christmas card for all StayOnTop followers. Better too soon than too late.

For those of us who always feel a little lonely this time of the year, remember you’re not alone. Here is a voice for you.

• footnote: Card based on a 1922 original by illustrator Norman Rockwell. It needed little modification.
    And today’s Doodle (at the top of this post) was of course inspired by the famous Christmas painting The Scream by Edvard Munch.

Today In History:

George SantayanaDec 16, 1863 –
Birth date of Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana. His skeptical down-to-earth philosophy, combined with his readability (he also wrote poems and a novel) made him very popular.
    Many Santayana quotes have become well-known aphorisms: his 1905 “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” is now an inscription at Auschwitz.
    For many of these quotes it is easy to forget they once sounded new and fresh. Examples: “The Bible is literature, not dogma” (1910) or “Only the dead have seen the end of war” (1922).
