To those who follow the old calendar, have a good feast of Saint Nicholas.
Someone made a video of the Saint Nicholas Day celebration in the Netherlands, among other things, to complement the audio of David Sedaris’ commentary on the holiday. Sedaris is funny; though, as a Greek, he should know better than to say that Saint Nicholas was the bishop of Turkey. Of course, comedians obscure the truth to highlight the absurd for laughs, but this is a lesser form of comedy. The facts in our crazy world are absurd enough for comedy, as his “Six to Eight Black Men” otherwise demonstrates.
Enjoy the day.
