And to you, too, Alex. I am planning to check out MRU this year.
Ah Saint Nicholas, good one Alex.
Ah, but Alex makes a noob mistake when it comes to Greek Orthodox Christmas: it is St. Basil, not St. Nick, that is venerated this time of year, and Wiki proves me right, repent! “In Greek tradition, he [St. Basil] brings gifts to children every January 1 (St Basil’s Day) — unlike other traditions where Father Christmas arrives either on December 6 (Saint Nicholas Day) or on Christmas Eve (December 24).” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Basil#Commemorations_of_Basil
“I have come here to give presents and punch heretics – and I’m all out of presents.”
Cool clothes, dude.
Notice the gold anyone. Is there a subliminal message to the faithful here?
Happy Holidays to you and your family as well – let’s hope for a New Year better than the old one!
The cool thing about Marginal Revolution is that every day with Alex and Tyler is like an intellectual Christmas for us loyal followers of MR
And you, Alex.
Nativity greetings and good wishes for the year we approach, with thanks for the work you share here.
This Christmas greeting for all you economists out there, aa cartoon from the New Yorker:
Great cartoon, but its premise is flawed, since most economic forecasts are wrong anyways
1) if using the commenters as an indicator of readers, it appears as though Christmas morning MR readers are almost exclusively male.
2) in the old “Merry Christmas” vs “Happy Holidays” debate it appears as though Tyler’s religious toned post heading is generating triple the comments of Alex’s secular toned post heading. Yes, it’s early in the game and a small sample size. Yes, Alex was later to the game but is this indicative of a shift of popular affinity towards more religiosity? Has Alex exploited a niche market that Tyler left untapped? What do the Austrian non-Paretoists have to say about this new equilibrium? <|;)
Enjoy the day and cease w the overthinking, analyzation, and how-can-i-be-the-most-sarcastic. Unless you value those things over love, family and friends.
Tyler, Alex — wonderful blog. Thanks for sharing each day. Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
What’s wrong with a little sarcasm, and what’s so great about family & friends, etc.?
Happy Holidays to Alex and Tyler!
Happy holidays to you too Alex. But who is the guy in the painting/
I think this is supposed to be the Turkish Saint Nicholas of Myra. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_of_Myra
Happy Newton-mass to all, atheists and otherwise.
