On Friday I went to my friends' annual Pee-wee Herman Christmas Special party. This is the official beginning of holiday cheer in my book -- or perhaps the whole sum of it, since I'm not a big practitioner of cheer of any sort.

Among the party-goers were two Jambas, neither of which was able to sever his own head in order to provide bounce-along guidance to the dreidl song. (Fast-forward to 4:00 on the video if that sounds cruel and inhumane to you, and you will understand that it is just happy fun.)

No one came as Charo, perhaps because it was freezing outside. Fortunately, this did not prevent Charo from appearing again to sing "Feliz Navidad," which is always my favorite part. Look at those fingers move!
