October 26, 2006


The leaves are falling, children extort candy, adults get drunk and wear masks--
it must be Christmas! Time again for the annual rite of cookie baking and frosting.
Because we won't be back in December, Christmas came early and got mixed up
with Halloween, which is OK because all Christian holidays have something to do
with death (don't forget why Jesus' parents were refugees: Herod was killing babies).
Speaking of murderers, can you guess what story this cookie dramatically re-enacts?
