This week’s holiday: Guess.  I am amazed at the spontaneous descriptions and discussions on journals and weblogs and chat rooms.  There’s much more than last year.  This begs the question of whether journals/blogs are ‘private’ or ‘public’ texts, and whether they have already evolved newsmedia-type conventions like A Holiday Is A News Peg.  Favorite comment so far is Patrick: “Nobody does patriotism like New Englanders.”  Me, I ate a makkara but it just wasn’t the same.

PS 2015: That was when the Internet was whelming but not overwhelming. Of course, holidays have long been a peg for private correspondence: cards particularly. Patrick is still a go-to person in my intersphere for the pithy comment.
