New Jersey earthquake

You may recall that I have my (tongue in cheek) holiday quake hypothesis.

Well, sure enough, there was a Christmas day magnitude 2.0 earthquake in New Jersey!

U.S. Geological Survey

But of course, with about 1.5 million earthquakes every year above magnitude 2, about the threshold which will be felt by people if close enough, there are many such small quakes somewhere in the world every day.
