Hard to come up with an entertaining letter this year, but I’ve done my best.

In this year’s letter you will learn how to repair a toilet, what not to take to France, when to clean your house, where the world’s elastic comes from, how to terraform the intertidal range, why shepherds in Germany are unhappy, and how to make pastry. Plus, there’s a cool tip for your next Zoom conference.

Here is our annual letter. In it, there’s poetry and polemics, polyglotism and pushchairs. You will learn why you should never move the soap, how to start a cricket club in a country that thinks the cricket is a game that you play while riding a horse, how to kiss a camel, what the opposite of “good” is, and how to turn a disaster into a win–win situation.

Happy Diwali, Maulid, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year, Chūnjié, Tsagaan sar, Tết and Norooz!
