From the Mail: More -Mas Variations

Dear Bill,

I enjoy your blog. I found it a while back through KeithBurgess-Jackson's blog. I came up with a few more -mas variations and thought you might enjoy them:

For those who love the capitol of the Czech Republic: Pragmas. For Dutch Reformed theologians of Frisian extraction who think Christmas is silly: Hoekemas. For Dutch Reformed philosophy professors of Frisian extraction who like preserves on their toast: Jellemas. For fans of older British sci-fi flicks: Quatermas. For those who buy every special seasonal periodical they can get their hands on: Magmas. One could probably multiply such examples ad nauseum, so I won't.

Merry Christmas to you, and thanks for your blog!
