So, soon be Christmas… To celebrate the holiday season, we've got a new version of The 12 Days of Christmas written by Jonathan Maas, aided and abetted by Chris Dale, for the benefit of the ediscovery and edisclosure community. And, we have a promotional clip for a new stage production of an all-Klingon version of A Christmas Carol which is playing in Chicago this year.
