Merry Christmas!

To all of our readers, celebrating today or not, we wish you all the best of what this season means to you and your family.

I particularly like the sentiments shared by my colleague, PalMD, on what Jews and Muslims are doing today in Detroit, Michigan.

I also like the sentiments so nicely expressed by Greta Christina at on 7 Reasons for Atheists to Celebrate the Holidays.

We also send out a big congratulations to original ScienceBlogs editor and science journalist, Christopher Mims, and his family on the birth of their beautiful son, Ike.

Merry Christmas (barely, one more hour of it here on the East Coast) to the PharmFamily!

k8, you inspire me with your joy and optimism. We had a very soggy and lukewarm Christmas that I would have gladly traded for some proper snow.

Merry Christmas to you, too, isles. Thank you for all of your support over the year. Hoping you had a lovely holiday as well!

Yay! Thanks for the holiday wishes. Ike is doing great. I particularly enjoyed your followup post on epidurals, because at 9 lbs 8 oz., we certainly got to find out what those are all about.
