An all-new holiday celebration that is at once Christian, Hebraic, Kwanzaic, Solsticial, Pagan, Dutch, Gaelic, NSA-cent, Comedic, Firesignish, Pythonish, Ratpackian, Lennonesque. Dylanesque, Devotional, Tchaicovskian and, above all, Earthwatchian!

Including a trenchant commentary on the "color" of Santa, the origins of "Black Peter," and the cultural revisionism of that "Duckin' Dynasty".
