Re: "Crimbo" please don't!

Oh, but what he's talking about is not a religious festival. It's a secular commercialized phenomenon. I suspect if Jesus returned today, it would not be moneychangers in the temple that he'd take against. Bankers and big retailers more likely. (Maybe the same thing, if one reads "world" for "temple" and treats it as allegory).

Crimbo seems appropriately horrible for the secular stuff. Christmas is the religious festival that happens at the same time of the year.
