Redemption? Having to socialise with relatives when all you really want to do is keep to yourself? Eating either too much or too little? The rampant commercialisation of what was originally a religious festival (first pagan, then Christian)? Having to listen to Christmas carols? Carols are a particular pet peeve of mine, partly because of my misotheism, but also because the lyrics are so insipid and nice.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not Grinch, nor am I Scrooge. And I enjoy Hogfather
. In fact, I like Hogfather
so much because it deconstructs and reconstructs Christmas. I also don't go around telling little kiddies that Santa Claus doesn't exist, and dead-Santa Claus jokes are never funny. Save for when you have Tim Allen around as a replacement. But I'm sorta over Christmas as an occasion to be merry and jolly.
