At the moment, we're eating oatmeal, reading the paper, and watching the Wiggles Christmas special. Do you know what's striking about it?

Christmas is mentioned. Frequently. Jesus is mentioned. They just sang an Irish song about birds coming to visit the Holy Family, complete with children acting out the song.

Do you know how refreshing that is? Do you know that we're just about sick to death of "Holiday specials" and "Holidays With Joe" (of Blue's Clues)? Do you know how frankly shocked I was to see those radical Wiggles thumbing their Aussie noses at our American evisceration of Christmas?

Oh. So not everyone has a child under five years of age? Pardon me.

The Wiggles.
