Not a typo.  Because the schedule for a holiday visit from our daughter Nechama and her wife Kat worked out to this weekend instead of next, we're saying What The Heck? Why Not? and throwing an installment of Christmas Eve and Christmas

morning in advance.  We are having Christmas Phase 1... Christmas Part 1... Early Christmas... We don't yet have a settled name for it.  We'll come up with something.

As holidays go, Christmas is the willow, not the oak.
