Cambridge a front in the War on Christmas?

Karrie reports what happened when she walked into Stellabella Toys in Inman Square this morning:

As we walked into the store, a rather stern looking, middle-aged woman was raving "It's MERRY CHRISTMAS! DO YOU HEAR ME? MERRY CHRISTMAS!" She caught my eye and barked: "None of this Happy Holidays bullshit!"

Hark the batshit crazy angels sing, lady. I heard you.

4. They are nuts and miserable.
I almost feel sorry for them because they have to spend so much time with themselves.

5. Bwahahahahaha!!!!!
Don't you just love the holidays. From what I understand, the local mental hospitals give some of their patients one day passes.

10. That's right...
Cuz Xmas sure isn't a religious holiday, right? Maybe not anymore. Seriously though, growing up, I didn't even know Christmas was a religious holiday...and that was in the 80's. I fear the materialism and general stupidity regarding this "holiday" have only gotten worse.


So, Crazy-Batshit-Lady? I'd like to thank you and all your cohorts in the "war" on Xmas (not to be confused with Christmas, a religious holiday) for ruining it for me. I don't want to celebrate a holiday hijacked by crazy, ignorant assholes.


Happy Holidays!
