Makin' the Yuletide Gay

I think one of the most trite sayings you see in holiday specials and to homeless people is "After all, it's Christmas." Normally, Charlie Brown's tree would go undecorated and that hobo's belly absent of gin, but people find it in their hearts to do something for others once a year because, after all, it's Christmas. If that's the only reason you'd treat another person equally, well, you're a sad individual. Maybe you're thinking, "Hey, I'd really like to burn down that hospital full of orphans and three-legged puppies, but after all, it's Christmas, so I'll do it next week." You saint, you. Just remember how many trees are lying on the curb on December 26th. The Christmas cheer runs out with the eggnog.
