December Edition of Blackjack Fairgrounds

Welcome to the December Edition of Blackjack Fairgrounds.

This month's theme is "Holidays in Jericho". Unfortunately, due to all the excitement of Jericho's encore return on The CW, we didn't get any submissions. Not wanting to cancel the issue, I took a short stroll around the Jericho on-line fandom and found some festive items (some old and some new).
We hope that you enjoy your time at Blackjack Fairgrounds. Remember the rules: no guns, thieves will be strung up, and be sure to leave before nightfall!

Holiday Stories

At Jericho Kansas Inc., Chris from the UK gives us "Merry Christmas Jericho":
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

At Jericho Rally Point, Scifiaddict gives us "Christmas Eve in Jericho".

At Jericho Fan Fiction, Serendip gives us Christmas Day 2006:
Hope and Gladness
Sun gleams bright
Let it Snow

Festive Article/Threads

Cinema Blend lists Jericho in their 12 DVD's of Christmas, as:
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .
The Show that wouldn't die

Radio Free Jericho has some wonderful Jericho Holiday E-Cards.

Jericho Net has a cute quiz about how well you know the Christmas Carols and Songs.

The Northern California Rangers are having "Gail Green's Famous Holiday Cookie/Food Exchange in combination with Casino Night at the Jericho Lodge". You can see the info here at JKI.

Even the networks are in the Holiday mood: "Please, Santa, have all those viewers who went away during the writers strike -- and who have stayed away -- come back."

This concludes this edition of Blackjack Fairgrounds.

Since Jericho is encoring on The CW (Sundays at 7/6 c), the theme of the January Edition is "Reviews/Musings for Episodes 1-5". If you've written a review of any of the first five episodes please let us know. Submission deadline is December 31st.
