Putting the X in Xmas
Time once again to celebrate the Capitalist holiday, derived from the Christian holiday, derived from the Pagan holiday, derived from the axial tilt of the Earth.

So while I much prefer today's neutered Xmas over the religious alternative, the cost is starting to feel too high, even to me...
