Bah humbug.

Yes, it's true. I'm a grinch. Christmas makes me grumpy. Nevertheless, we hosted the DC Martin's annual kid's gift exchange - because some of the cousins are leaving town, there is always an early gift opening between the local families. At the end of the afternoon, we realized that tonight is the first night of the Hanukkah, so I dug the menorah out from the basement and lit the first candle.

Why does christmas get you grumpy? just concentrate on the good food, pretty lights, and family.
