Christmas Cheer

If you've had enough of my Christmas nyrps*, you might like to visit Mr. Fitzpatrick's Recta Ratio where you can find Washington Irving's "Old Christmas" being serialized here. Considerably cheerier and utterly bereft of inflatable cartoon characters. The link is to the first installment. Scroll up for more. He's has some scrumptious-sounding Christmas recipes displayed also.

(*nyrps, depressing thoughts, low spirits. "That woman always gives me the nyrps." from The Ulster-English Dictionary.)
