Following in Santa’s wake, we’ve found a special Christmas Link - Story of The Nutcracker in pictures: Sarah ArdizzoneGuardian

 

And from Bruce Marriott, our Secret Santa and Founding Father, there's Celebrating BRB’s Peter Wright Nutcracker at 25: DanceTabs

 

 

And non-believers should check the National Air Traffic Services (NATS) rigorous tracking of last night’s flight here and the preparatory special SANTAM here

 

And remember, he’s still up there right now, somewhere over the West Coast of North America.

 

So, from the Links team, a very Happy Christmas to all our Forum members and users!
