Bah! Humbug!

“What’s Christmas time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer; a time for balancing your books and having every item in ’em through a round dozen of months presented dead against you?”

Christmas shopping is totally out of hand for most of us, or many of us, at least. But the tradition of doing nice things for the people you care about, and having them do the same in return, is — even to a hard-bitten journo — pretty cool. Heartwarming, even. Not to mention what makes retailers happy usually helps make newspapers happy.

Too bad about the ridiculous debt and global warming that result. Bah!
