    Just to mention a probable false positive on an anomalous synchronicity, I think. On Dec. 24 I happened to watch a Netflix movie, El Camino Christmas, that I’d never seen, and they used “Donde Esta Santa Claus?” which I’d never heard before – yes, a sheltered life I have lived.

    So, then the next day on Dec 25, for a little Yuletide festivity, I visited here at R.M. and listened, and there at no. 7 was 7 – Augie Rios – “Donde Está Santa Claus?”

    But, since the date of Dec 25th draws very similar themed entertainment for days before and after, I don’t think I would count it as an “anomalous” synchronicity, but a rather holiday-forced synchronicity. Anyway,

    Best wishes for 2019.
