12 Days of Christmas, #1: Roger Bennett

If I had the power to give anyone any Christmas gift, my first choice would be easy. I would give Roger Bennett a clean bill of health.

  1. You’re off to a great start with that one!!! Can’t wait to see the next 11 “gifts”.

  2. Amen!

  3. Daniel,

    Love the idea of doing this, and certainly your wish on this is one we all share. I look forward to seeing the rest of your list!

    Just as an irrelevant matter of trivia, don’t the Twelve Days of Christmas begin on Christmas and end on Epiphany? Aren’t we still in Advent right now?


  4. Tom, I believe you are right. I just started it when it occurred to me to start it, although I was slightly aware (in the back of my head) that the time period didn’t really start until after Christmas.
