Politically incorrect Yuletide greetings - season's my ar...

Hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to New Year's Eve. Personally I've become very disillusioned with the whole affair - I believe the true meaning of Christmas has been lost amidst the frantic brouhaha of present buying and face stuffing. There used to be a time, many moons ago, when Christmas meant you could expect there to be a sled-load of quality comedies, dramas, Christmas specials and movies on TV. Well what did you think I was getting at? People were celebrating Christmas way before it was hijacked by Christianity. Don't look at me like that, Google it for yourselves. :p

These days all we seem to get is "The World's Greatest TV Moments You've Seen a Squillion Times Before ...Ever (there's always got to be an 'ever' in there somewhere), Cobbled Together and Voice-Overed by Some Cheapo, D-List Celeb". This year even this exercise in epic drudgery was repeated 24 hours after the big day. Where did it all go wrong? I blame Jesus. I don't know why yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had something to do with it. "The Simpson's Christmas Message" offered welcome sanctuary from her royal, high and mighty queeniness, but why was it only on for five measly minutes?

I don't want to finish on a sour note so here are some random words with happy connotations: mistletoe, Christmas pud, booze (and lots of it), white christmases, Slade, blow-up illuminated Homer Simpson's wearing santa suits, jinglebells. Thank you for your attention. :)
