They’re back!

They’re back!

Because Heather pointed it out in the comments, and because it needs to be shouted from the rooftops, let’s point out that the Oxford American Magazine is back! May I suggest that this fine publication would be a terrific Christmas gift for anyone on your list who is interested in good writing, southern life and literature, and FABULOUS music. The whole subscription is worth it for the annual music issue, which comes with a CD that will make you dance with happiness around your living room.

The other good cause I’m supporting this year, is Heifer Project International. I’m buying animals for several people on my list, especially for a couple of the kids who are big enough to play with the little toy chickens I’m giving them, and think about the kids in China or Guatamala or Africa who now have a flock of chickens … a flock of chickens that will provide eggs and meat and cash, a flock of chickens that can be leveraged into a better life. Of course, the kids will still get markers and art supplies, because that’s the kind of auntie I am — the art supply kind of auntie.

Anyhow, those are my suggestions for stemming the tide of silly stuff none of us really needs this year. My idea of a great Christmas is where we all just spend our money on good food and good wine and are grateful to be together. Hokey, yeah, but it’s Christmas, the season of hokieness …
