Twas the Night Before

December 24, 2023

It is Saturday morning when I usually write these emails, and within the hour more than two dozen people are going to descend on our house. It is an absolutely wonderful burden to have all of these people, aged 10 months to 88 years, bless us with their presence.

Since it is Christmas Eve when this email will go out, I assume very few of you will see it anyway, but let me summarize (more details next week I promise):

  • Inflation is down.

  • The stock market is up.

  • Worry has not, and will never, go away.

And I will close with a favorite passage from one of my favorite short stories:

"Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did NOT die, he was a second father. He became a good friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world....and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!"

Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Have a great week!
