On the Third Day of Christmas...

We warned you last month that National Fruitcake Month would be celebrated in December.

Well, today, is the culmination of all those wild fruitcake festivities... National Fruitcake Day.

We hope you've been keeping up. And, remember, if you're one of the unfortunate few who actually received a fruitcake at Christmas, be sure to re-gift it as soon as possible.

We have to keep these things in circulation as much as possible -- otherwise someone might make more of 'em.

Today is also Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day -- but only if you're allowed to use the scissors with the pointy ends.

Some of us are, and some of us aren't.

And today is the 33rd Anniversary of the Soviet takeover of Afghanistan. After seizing power in 1979, the USSR got caught up in a decade of never-ending, debilitating warfare. In fact, the stress and strain of the USSR's Afghan adventure is often cited as one of the major factors in the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union.

Fortunately, the United States learned from the Soviet mistake.

No... wait... actually, we've been stuck there longer.
