Changing traditions

It seems that the Christmas Eve plan has been on Bud's mind. I awoke yesterday morning at 6:00 a.m. with Bud's face in mine.

"You don't sing 'Happy birthday to you...'" he lilted as soon as I opened one eye. "You sing 'hap-py-birth-day-BOY-JE-SUS!" He sang this out in the conga beat that Oobi uses to celebrate birthdays so that his creator doesn't have to pay the high royalty fees associated with the more traditional melody.

Latin rhythms to honor the sixth anniversary of Christ's birth. I can't wait to find out what comes next.
