+Writing your own context processors
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+A context processor has a very simple interface: It's just a Python function
+that takes one argument, an ``HttpRequest`` object, and returns a dictionary
+that gets added to the template context. Each context processor *must* return
+a dictionary.
+
+Custom context processors can live anywhere in your code base. All Django cares
+about is that your custom context processors are pointed-to by your
+``TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS`` setting.
