HERB BENHAM: Christmas merry and bright for the Benhams

Would this be the year I'd fall off the wall on the front porch while stringing up the evergreen garland and white twinkly lights? If 2022 weren't memorable enough, falling backward into the scratchy pink bushes would do the job and serve as a catchy first line in next year's Christmas letter.

A light tumble balances a Christmas letter that is generally filled with more good than bad news. No one wants you dead, maimed or otherwise incapacitated, but there is nothing wrong with delivering a slice of humble pie.
