Let us not forget that the Darling children's adventures with Peter Pan began at Xmas-time.
(Makes it all the more devastating for George and Mary, eh?)
Wishing you the brightest & merriest!
I'll be back to "rant" in the New Year.
(I assure you I'll be working on Peter Pan: Betwixt-and-Between in the meantime.)
For YOUR meantime, I'll leave you to ponder:
Why don't the Cratchits give presents to each other?
(The answer could be they're too poor...
but then there's that old idea that making them is better...)
