Greetings, Quickbeam here. For those who are familiar with Frank Church’s famous Christmas editorial, written back in 1897 (Yes, Virginia, There Really is a Santa Claus), perhaps you will also enjoy the Middle-earth twist that I gave it a few years back.

From all of us at, we wish you the most splendid holiday season! Be safe, be content, and may the stars ever shine upon you in 2004….
