A few weeks ago my daughter’s class was gearing up to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday, and I was asked to help prepare some “holiday bingo cards” for the kid’s party. Naturally, I wrote a program in R for the job! (I know, I know, Maslow’s hammer)

Since I learned a few R tricks for making a grid and placing text, and since today is the first day of the Hour of Code, I’ve decided to release the code;-)

The 13 lines (excluding comments) of code below will produce 25 random Festivus Bingo Cards and write them out to a single pdf file for easy printing. You supply the Festivus Nog.
