What Christmas Is All About
I managed to manage the run-up to Christmas (the going out to get stuff part), so that it won't interfere with Christmas itself. In the last week, I could have posted about things that bothered me, such as people who get their knickers in a twist because not every store clerk is going to say "Merry Christmas" to everyone, or the fact that for some inexplicable reason Mr. Springsteen allowed the sale of a "Wal-Mart Exclusive" CD with "greatest hits" of the E Street Band (which I consider to be a sign of the End of Days, if you must know).
However, I decided that I wasn't going to let all that commercialism ruin my Christmas, in the words of our favorite philosopher, Charlie Brown.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
