We're taking a long weekend.

So Merry Christmas to you and yours if you're about to celebrate. Happy holidays to everyone. We'll be back to our regular schedule on Tuesday. ...

... Unless there's important news over the weekend of course. And, you may see a post or two from the NPR.org weekend crew if they have time.

Meanwhile, if you'd like to get into the Christmas spirit, this Morning Edition report from NPR's Eric Westervelt earlier this week may be just the thing. He takes you to "the oldest functioning church in Berlin, the 13th-century Saint Mary's, [where its annual] performance of Bach's Christmas Oratorio is a fixed tradition."
