A Merry Christmas to All

Please let me know in the comments if I have forgotten anybody.

  • Rot13(Yhpl Gur Fyhg)
  • Simon, Julie and Webb (from Numberwang)

  • Oscar the Grouch and other characters from Sesame Street

  • Eagle, Lion and other animal types defined by Professional Poker player Phil Hellmuth
  • Wise Snail
  • Ninja Monkey
  • The Queen of Hearts (from my short story trilogy of 2019)

In return, the above list of characters would like to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas. Here’s looking forward to More Of The Same in 2022.
