1 a : a break in or as if in a material object : gap
2 a : an interruption in time or continuity : break; especially : a period when something (as a program or activity) is suspended or interrupted
So a hiatus for the holidays: yawn.
(Junior the Bear says he may blog some this month, but I wouldn't bet on it. Word is he's been down in Louisiana and Fatman says he is stuffed with crawdads and may go into hibernation if the weather gets too cold.)
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Tov Hanukkah, Kwazy Kwanzaa, Salaam!
