Puer natus est nobis
The one thing I really hate about Christmas, after the commercialism, is people bitching about Christmas.
Though the complaint about replacing Advent with ‘a sprawling “holiday season” full of expectations that just become annoyances’ (from nasty relatives to retail vultures guilting you outta your gelt) has merit. At least ‘happy holidays’ acknowledges the month is holy to Jews and Christians, better than the older and more odious and Soviet ‘season’s greetings’ you used to see a lot.
This Christmas I shall be celebrating the birth of Jesus, as always, extravagantly and joyously, with much singing and dancing, elaborate and tasteless decoration, large-scale gift disbursement, and many other acts of merriment.
