Sorry about the mail

I’ve vacation-mode’d the Etsy shop and local-pickup-only’d the self-hosted shop, because things that went out over a week ago are still in transit and family Christmas packages that I sent via Priority haven’t even left West Berlin (08091, not Germany) according to the scanners. I have more family packages that I unwisely hung onto expecting some last-minute stocking stuffers to put in them, and now I’m just not even going to take them down to fill up the tiny post office until after Christmas at least.

In addition to Epiphany, let me also suggest Orthodox Christmas. The Gregorian and Revised Julian calendars may have Christmas next week, but by the traditional Julian “December 25” falls on what we’ve been thinking of as January 7. It’s a year for thinking outside the 🎁, of necessity.
