Santa & The Demon Drink.

Norwegian has a useful word; I can’t think of an English equivalent for romjul, or “Space Christmas”.  It means the interval between Christmas day and New Year’s day — actually, a week — the time when some of us flop around on the sofa like stranded manatees, eating and drinking more and more until we go-off pop.

The illustration is of St. Francis driving the demons from the lake by our house.  In the foreground is the diving board.
