Another kickoff of the season is a Christmas poll at Illini6. I do believe I've done this before. It's not as strong a tradition as Cthulhu Month in October, but I think I'll try to keep it going from here on out.
Why don't you stop on by Illini6 and vote on the pole, er, I mean poll and if you want you can air grievances too (I guess).
Oh and by the way, did you hear that the Pope doesn't like Christmas? It's pravda.
