Last year, Drive and Dish showed a Christmas scene from Prague, Czech Republic.
I guess Drive and Dish isn't the only blog that thought a "Christmas around the world" post would be a cool thing to publish. It was on Christmas eve that the editorial staff here at Drive and Dish made the decision to create such a post. As such, we spent several hours scouring the web for pictures of Christmas celebrations from far and wide. The post was published on Christmas morning.
But after Power Line blog attached a similar "Christmas around the world" feature to a post that originally offered musings about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinijad's Christmas address to the UK on British television (yes, you read that right: as a special Christmas gift, a British television network invited the kufir [infidel]-hating, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran to scold the British public for their evil ways) on Christmas night, people will probably just think that we ripped the idea off from them.
Who knows, maybe they ripped the idea off of us.
