From 37,000 feet over Nevada, I'm dropping in (not literally) to say peace, joy and good tidings to all Kossacks everywhere, whether you believe in Santa, Jesus or none of the above.

2012 has had its ups and downs, just like this turbulence-buffeted Southwest flight headed to SFO. The seatbelt sign is on again!

I hope you all have a blissful Xmas whether you sleep in tomorrow or are rousted out by smallfry as soon as the sun comes up.

May you not be caught for hours in the Toys R Us Returns Here queue on Wednesday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
