Can't get myself to stop visiting this place so I better stay nice the next 12 months as well.
Thanks a lot for everything I've learned during this last decade.
Big up to dang and the crew too, for being the mirrors into our souls we need when our comments are too cranky and mean ... Thanks for keeping the community interesting
edit: This is a legitimate question, in case it wasn't obvious.
edit 2: Got it, no questions allowed. Apologies.
The list is endless.
Please don't add bits like that to HN comments. They're off topic and break the guidelines and will lead to further downvotes.
Re your question, there's lots of discussion out there:
HN is the place where I first discovered tons of people who seemed so similar to me..! I only wish to one day work surrounded by some of you :)
During my first job, my boss introduced me to HN. I doubt I would've found it so soon otherwise, as the only other person that knew about it before I mentioned it is someone I only met this year.
My first boss was a great guy to work with and I'm grateful he told me about it. Even though I learned a lot from him professionally, the impact of that one-time five-minute conversation about the site might have added up to more over the years.
I am now full of food.
Let the Linux nerds break bread with the Mac hipsters. May the Haskell devs write bindings for JS libraries. And the VC dreamers shake the hands of the determined bootstrappers.
Peace amongst nerds, for a single day.
Seeing as I was born on Christmas Day, I got only the one present, which I figured as cheating. My parents said the one present would have to do :]
My son was born on the 26th and he is not happy either.
May 2020 be even good !
It really makes a difference when you're with people on the holiday season. I hope I can pay it forward one day.
So fair a fancy few would weave
In these years! Yet, I feel,
If someone said on Christmas Eve,
"Come; see the oxen kneel
"In the lonely barton by yonder coomb
Our childhood used to know,"
I should go with him in the gloom,
Hoping it might be so.
I met a lot of nice people thanks to HN this year, and I'm very grateful for that. All the best to everyone!
Merry Christmas, happy New Year, and may whichever deity or demiurge you deem worthy of worship shower you and yours with blessings in the days to come!
And 2020, give us a break. Please.
I’m fairly new to this site, but it’s been eye-opening as a student to learn from professionals and other tech enthusiasts. Hope everyone on HN has had a great decade.
Amazing how much that show has entered into the modern American (and other countries?) lexicon.
Shout out to everyone away from home this year. Wherever home is, and for whatever reason. Big hugs, hope you manage to find some joy anyway.
Also Happy Hanakkuh, Happy Kwanza, and whatever other celebration you might observe. I hope 2020 is a great year for all.
Thanks everyone for being you.
Merry Xmas, may you and yours be happy, healthy, and having fun.
From the Greek Platonic tradition , there was a belief in an ineffable Oneness that is the origin and nature of all things. Allegorically, this was treated as a person, like Zeus, but recognized to be fundamentally transcendental and ineffable pure — the One.
The Logos was the emanation from the One; it was the son of god, so to speak, that crafted all material reality. Logos is typically translated as "word", like "in the beginning was the word", but that minimizes the concept of logos. Importantly, Jesus was understood to be the incarnation of the Logos in human form; "the word made flesh.". 
That was the dominant philosophical idea in Christian theology until the year 400, when Pope Theophilus of Alexandria had to deal with rioting monks who demanded an anthropomorphic God. He ended up killing the 10,000 monks who believed in an incorporeal God. 
So, enjoy your christmas: the celebration of the day when the logos became incarnate!
