It's the first night of Hanukkah. It's also Christmas Eve.  We all get to celebrate our joys together this year.  Much nicer than Turkunukkah or whatever that was. (Not to be confused with Turducken.)

The night before Christmas is my favorite night here.  It's mostly quiet and you think you should go home, but then someone shows up at the last minute and you realize that's why you're here and why it's worth it to stay.  We've been open normal hours Christmas Eve at least since I've been here.  It was a decision made because there's so much running around and procrastination and traffic and chaos there should be one place, one errand, that is civil and not about time or deadlines.
