We’re having our first decent snowfall of the year, with more coming Friday, which of course makes the world look a Christmas card. So Christmas approaches, let me offer my happiest holiday wishes, and a new Criminal Christmas carol.
Buy yourself a mystery for Christmas
Death in black and white
From then on,
Your troubles will be out of sight
Read yourself a mystery at Christmas
Turn pages every day
From then on
Your troubles will be miles away!
Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of gore
Faithful sleuths who are dear to us
Solving crimes for us once more
Through the years
We’ll be reading them together
If publishers allow
From Sayers to Sherlock’s last bow!
And treat yourself to mystery at Christmas now!
