Merry Christmas

"The paper crane has become an international symbol of peace in recent years as a result of it's connection to the story of a young Japanese girl named Sadako Sasaki born in 1943 [...] Sadako was diagnosed with leukemia, "the atom bomb" disease.
Sadako's best friend told her of an old Japanese legend which said that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes would be granted a wish. [...] She started to work on the paper cranes and completed over one thousand before dying on October 25, 1955 at the age of twelve." - The Sadako Story

Remember, there are plenty of other reasons for the season.
This has been a message from your friendly neighborhood Christ(mas)-killing agnostic of Jewish decent.
