It's that time of year again, when Santa and his nine reindeer (one allegedly red-nosed) distribute presents and we leave out mince pies and maybe something purely medicinal for the white-bearded gentleman of yore. Yes, it's Christmas time: all that holly, ivy and mistletoe. Crackers, too. Some thought I was crackers to start Classical Source all those years ago, back in 1999, and if it has developed in directions I would never have suspected, then I am very pleased with how things have gone. We have excellent, dedicated and informed writers, our Comments service allows readers to interact, we tweet, and feedback is positive. So, my thanks to contributors and viewers, to Colin (editor), Kevin (he adds the snaps and does the birdsong) and David (for coordinating in New York). I wish you all oodles of festive fun.
