wassail time

"merry old santa claus" by thomas nast. first published in harper's weekly on jan. 1, 1881.

It’s nearly 4:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve – time to wrap things up here at The Musical Box before Father Christmas heads to the open skies. We’ll be on holiday, enjoying Santa’s generous nature and a merry wassail or two, for a  few days. But check back over the weekend. We still have some final business to conclude for 2009, including our list of the year’s best albums and concert performances.

Until then, have a wonderful, fun and safe holiday. Be happy. Be thankful. And watch the skies. Santa rides tonight!
