Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier every year so we here at Image of the Week would like to offer this lovely picture of Christmas tree worms as a friendly reminder that there are only 203 short days remaining for you to get all your shopping done. And look! These friendly worms are even sensitive to the fact that not everyone celebrates Christmas… can they get a what-what for busting out the blue and silver (whoops, gold!) for Channukah? (Cut them some slack, people, they are only invertebrates…)
