"I stood gimlet-eyed in the Hall to Paradise."
To all manner of culture warriors.
The first battle call of the year
It seems that Christmas is so dear
But only as a prize to be won
Surely holy days are undone.
I think this is the year I finally get my wife to forego the tree and assorted bogus props. We shall see.
IMO, Christmas is about visiting and giving gifts in that fashion. For the poor they can at least give the gift of their company. The tree is okay, but the snowmen and the St. Coca Colas go to far for anyone who doesn't have kids.
