Best of our TU Community Blogs, December 24, 2015: Ten for Thursday

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,
The bloggers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of blog comments danced in their heads…

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a brand new blog post by the ones you hold dear
All gathered together with some pluck and luck
By the guy you all know as your blog herder Chuck

“On Huba! On Rittner!  On Wheeler and Hoffman!
On Snyder and Stark, Barbudinas and Davidson!
A brand new blog post we must craft for this wall
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!”

And gathered today, for your Christmas Eve pleasure
Are ten TU blogs by ten TU blog treasures
And as you enjoy them, as is your true right…
Happy Christmas to all… and to all a good night!

  1. Michael Conners’ blog, “Christmas Miracles.” (Read this first.  I mean it.)
  2. Mary Martin’s “A Good Enough Life” blog, “A boy’s Christmas memories – 1950s Ireland.

And now, friends, a wish for the holiday season
Though it’s summertime weather, so far from freezin’
May you spend your holidays with your loved ones today
And say prayers for those who are miles away

For six years I’ve blogged for this Times Union portal
My blogs have caused smiles, some tears, maybe a chortle
So I say to you now… in every style and way
Enjoy your beautiful seasonal holiday!
