Reason for the season?

Profound reflections on the nature of the seasons of Advent and Christmas from Benjamin

Advent, on the other hand, is spent investigating the modal nature of sugar (it was fudge, it is cookies, it will be almond rocca, world without end amen) , writing letters to Santa, and demanding the head of any cashier or clerk who dares to wish you “Happy Holidays? instead of a “Merry Christmas?, like the Bible says they should. This is all capped by said holiday, wherein you exchange gifts with people who already have everything that they want, if not more than they actually need.

The only thing you get for Easter is chocolate eggs and salvation, and where on earth are you going to exchange that for something in your color?

There’s a lot to be said for sharply observed sarcasm.
