As the conches from the temple scream and bray.
With the fruitless years behind us, and the hopeless years before us,
Let us honor, O my brother, Christmas Day!
Call a truce, then, to our labors -- let us feast with friends and neighbors,
Christmas In India by Rudyard Kipling
Last night West Gate met for its annual Christmas Social at the December Regular Meeting. The food was exceptional and plentiful. Great job by the Furlongs organizing such a wonderful gathering.
