I am particularly happy with the piece I wrote this week for Skeptoid. Well, technically only partially wrote for Skeptoid. The truth is that this article has been in my draft file for a couple years now. Every Christmas I’d write it, realize I had nowhere meaningful to publish it, and close the file. I’m so thrilled that I have the Skeptoid Blog this year. It means the article will draw at least a small readership.
In general, Christmas history is a topic I love to read and write about. Holiday folklore and history is a passion of mine in general, just one I never seem to get the chance to write about. So publishing this piece scratches a real creative itch!
