New Year Baby

Here is a happy New Year Baby for 2016! He represents the birth of the next year and the death of the passing year. He was made popular in editorial cartoons in these antiquated things called “newspapers” around the end of the 19th Century. I guess we can continue that tradition in our shiny new light based media as we make our annual trip around the sun. He is holding a sparkler with a glass of sparkling apple cider. He also has a top hat and a sash.

Merry Christmas Internets! Let me introduce you to the hallowed tradition of the Christmas Potato. Go out into the garden the day before Christmas and pick an eye bud sprout from a potato that is thriving in this unseasonably warm, climate change fueled Spring in Winter weather. Then wish a Christmas wish to the wizened, magical and all knowing Christmas potato. In the true spirit of Christmas you must wish for a material item. Then put the sprout in your pants. Later that night the Christmas potato will come to your house and magically change your sprout into the thing you wished for.
