01/08/21 Grif.Net – Reflections on the Holidays

[Hanukkah, =
Advent, Christmas, New Year, Epiphany have all passed into history for =
another year. Here is my unvarnished opinion of the holiday time, some =
original and some borrowed from people far funnier or more insightful =
than I will ever be.]

I got my wish for Christmas this year – for =
someone to wake me when it’s over.

 

What I like =
about Christmas is that we try to make people forget the past with the =
present.

 

I think =
Christmas was a baby shower that went totally =
overboard.

 

I celebrated =
this deeply religious holiday time that each of us observes, in his own =
way, by going to the mall of his choice.

 

Christmas is a =
magical time of year. I just watched all my money magically =
disappear.

 

Even before =
Christmas said ‘Hello’, it said ‘Buy =
Buy’.

 

I am one =
bottle of gel away from being able to open my own Christmas gift shop in =
my shower.

 

Oh, for the =
good old days when my wife would stop Christmas shopping when she ran =
out of money.

 

Keep your =
friends close, your enemies closer, and receipts for all major =
purchases.


And =
seriously . . .

There’s =
nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be =
a child.
