Berkeleyside wishes its readers a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Solstice and every other sort of happiness. We will be taking a brief break the next couple of days and will only post lightly through New Year’s (got to read those holiday books) — unless there is significant breaking news, in which case we’ll be on it! Because that’s just the kind of people we are.
