Noel Noel and Feast of Stephen

Santa comes to Old Oakland

Just what everyone wants to see in January
Christmas images

The clouds of December loom
Over the Yule-festooned Potomac

 African-American Santa
House of Chicken and Waffles

Uptown Xmas shopping

Animal nation, Indian nation, 
One nation under god,
Up-market branding

 Holiday materialists are in their element

 But Xmas was once about more than shopping

Time to cross the chasm
Between the Sacred and the secular
Time to contemplate

 History's greatest miracle
The mystery made man

A moist festival of lights

Jack London Square
Christmas Tree

Potomac  gets lit 
The Moon and the Estuary lights

Old Oakland welcomes St Nick

December 2015
