To celebrate the holiday, Gossips is shutting down the computer, turning on the Christmas lights, and taking a couple of days off. Enjoy the holiday! Gossips will be back on Saturday with more news and musings.
Meanwhile, as our holiday gift to readers, here are a pair of images that appeared in the Hudson Evening Register for December 24, 1915: "The Night Before Christmas" and "Christmas Morning."
