Hey friends of Ellie! We want to send you a special electronic Holiday card featuring a pic of our favorite Christmas tree ornament. If you’ve left a comment here, or followed Ellie’s adventures via Facebook and (now) Twitter, you’re golden! You need do nothing more. If you haven’t done any of those, now’s the time. You have until next Friday, the 23rd, 12am EST, when we send them out. Act now!

To tide you over, we’d like to share some pics of our tiny Christmas tree here at Ellie Mission Control at the Strang Institute. All manner of strange things make it on and under the tree, including the head from a Mister Bill stuffed doll that Institute mascot Bijou the dog pulled off and chewed up (I forgot to photograph that, though).

Enjoy and Happy Holidays from everyone at Mission Control!
