Just to annoy certain people...

I would like everyone to go read this post by Jeanetta, which tackles an issue that has been of some annoyance to me lately, as well.

And this quote, just to confuse you as to where I stand on the issue...
If a man called Christmas Day a mere hypocritical excuse for drunkeness and gluttony, that would be false, but it would have a fact hidden in it somewhere. But when Bernard Shaw says that Christmas Day is only a conspiracy kept up by Poulterers and wine merchants from strictly business motives, then he says something which is not so much false as startling and arrestingly foolish. He might as well say that the two sexes were invented by jewellers who wanted to sell wedding rings.

Adieu... and Salutary Solstice!

Exactly.

Besides, the jewellers don't even need two sexes to sell wedding rings.
