My wife gave me this terrific ornament for Christmas yesterday – it perfectly represents the combination of whimsy, wonder and nostalgia that the holiday brings out in us.
09.12.27 UPDATE: We were awoken at 6:45 this morning by the sound of our Christmas tree toppling over. Many cherished ornaments lost. Some miraculously survived, including the robot. Cleanup was a grim task. Tree expelled from house.
