The Best Christmas EVER was a Hugo Winning story from 2004, by James Patrick Kelly.

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays.

Drey, Gar, and I visit Gunston Hall, home of founding father George Mason, for their Christmas Open House.  The evening was a blast-- we toured the Mansion, complete with Living History actors playing the parts of George Mason, Mrs. Mason and the extended Mason family.  Period era refreshments-- venison, mushroom pie, cake, and sylabubb.
