Balls of turkey in sweet and sour sauce on rice with fresh baked crescent rolls for Christmas Eve dinner. Yum. The retailers and the news people want us to feel bad because we didn't spend money on dancing plastic Santa dolls and poorly written Christmas cards. I say, that's Capitalism, baby! I think we would all be better off if S-Mart and their ilk didn't waste energy and resources manufacturing things no sane person would ever want to buy in the first place.

Merry Happy and all that :-)
