I'm not a big fan of the Christmas season... okay, I flat out don't like it. The problem is that I have about a day-and-a-half worth of interest in it, but the darn thing goes on for a month and a half. There's no way that the "special" moments on Christmas morning justify the emotional and financial stress brought about by the season.
Furthermore, the days are getting shorter and shorter, which I find unnerving, and it's also Christmas time, so there is guilt by association.
So, here are some of the best things of a true bah humbug spirit:
Movie quotation: "Christmas? Christmas means dinner, dinner means death! Death means carnage; Christmas means carnage!" Ferdinand the duck in Babe.
T-shirt slogan: "What part of bah humbug don't you understand?"
Joke: What did Jesus ever do for Santa Claus' birthday? (Steven Wright)
Photographs: Bad Mall Santas
Song: Christmas time by Larry Norman
Santa Claus is coming and the kids are getting greedy
They know what's in the stores ´cause they seen it on the TV
You go into the forest and you cut down all the trees
I know you got a power saw, but who plants the seeds
I gotta buy a present, can´t remember who it´s for
I´ll see you in a hour when I get back from the store
It used to be the birthday of The Man who saved our necks
Now it stands for Santa Claus, they spell it with an "X"!
It´s Christmas time...
