'Tis the Season of Greed and Gluttony

With Thanksgiving we are well into the Season of Greed and Gluttony. You know the season well. It starts with Halloween, where you get all the candy you can. Then, it continues with Thanksgiving, where you eat all the turkey you can. Then, comes Christmas, where you get all the presents you can. It finishes with New Year's, where you drink all the alcohol you can.

We also get to watch the War on Christmas, in which perfectly unreasonable people argue over where to put creches, what to say to each other, and who's more persecuted than they are.

Let us not forget the ancient admonition, "Peace on earth, good will to all. Unless you're different from me. In which case, you can stick it in your ear."
