Welcome to your holiday season CSS Layout News. I'm having my first Christmas week vacation in many years. I did pop my head over the work parapet each morning to make sure Designcember was rolling out. You might enjoy these interviews with Miriam Suzanne and Lynn Fisher that were published over the break.

I have read a few things from the comfort of my sofa, and you'll find those below.

Happy New Year!
