There isNo summary of Posts in this Post! --because you are reading a summary of all the Posts to date. To see what Post 20 has summarized, just look back over the summaries of the 19 Posts to date, from February through November.
So may you have a Most Merry Christmas. AND—watch for Post 21 on January 15 of the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Fifteen. So it will be another month before another Post appears, and it be Post 21. (I have stuff to do in the interim. I bet you do, too.)
