It’s Christmastime, again.

As of noon today Arlington county government offices were closed and libraries were preparing to close at 1:00 p.m. Most everything government-related will remain closed tomorrow.

As Arlington residents gather with family and friends — either looking forward to presents under the tree or a relaxing day of movies, Chinese food and light traffic — wishes our readers across the county and around the world the happiest of holidays.

For those working in retail, restaurants, delivery, public safety, national security, and elsewhere today and tomorrow, simply: thank you.
