Larry David rivals only Scrooge in his disdain for Christmas

*** begin quote ***

Among the holiday’s most offensive elements, in his opinion, are — “the loathsome music. The movies with their ridiculous, treacly sentiments. The presents — thinking about them, shopping for them (never without resentment), and the attendant pile of garbage that accumulates from opening them, an environmental disaster simultaneously taking place in living rooms across the country.”

*** end quote ***

Yes, it seems that the alleged reason for the season is completely forgotten by this celebrating it.

I always thought Scrooge got a bum rap from the media.  Especially, about the “workhouses”, when he paid his taxes.

There is so much “poverty of spirit” in the land we don’t need to fake it for a “holiday”.

So I, like Larry, just keep my feelings to my self and go on my “merry way”.

Happy Festivus.

And a “Bash Humbug” to you all.

Peace on Earth, good will to …
