Know what’s awesome? Christmas.
It’s the closing moments of December first, and I don’t think I’m telling any tales out of school when I declare these days to be the most wonderful time of the year. At the risk of sounding sarcastic, there’s never a more beautiful time to be a capitalist than the thirty or so days leading up to the day we observe the birth of Jesus Christ, Dido and Karl Rove, as well as the death of Ottoman military leader and all-around jerk Kara Mustafa Pasha*. The Holiday Season has you in its warm, inviting clutches and you couldn’t free yourself even with the sweetest shiv sharpened from the most charming candy cane!
So for the next 25 days, we’re going to do things a bit differently around here and focus on all the things I love about this blessed time of year. So strap on your finest Santa hat, because it’s Christmastime and I’m about to shove it down your stocking. Hard.
*See you in Hell, dirtbag!
