In the Late December, by Greg van Eekhout
Appropriately enough, today I read a Christmas story. In the Late December was nominated for a Nebula in 2004. It's a nice little end-of-the-world tale, elegiac enough to be clever but still offering some hope. Santa has been at it for 43 billion years, and it may be about the end of the line. Why does one go on, at that point? Read to see the author's answer. 3 stars.
