12 Days of Christmas Anime: Patlabor

Here is a little post I wrote about a couple of Christmas episodes of Patlabor and how they reminded me of a passage from G.K. Chesterton’s The Everlasting Man. I feel honored to have had my post scheduled for Christmas Eve, and I hope that my dear readers enjoy it. Click on the link below.
