Happy Christmas, everyone! For those who don't know the story, today is the day that Santa Claus gave a baby to a young peasant woman named Mary, whose husband Joseph - through no fault of his own - was sterile. Or, if not sterile, just really tired in the evenings. Santa and Mary met secretly late at night in a barn near a crowded inn, but somehow three lunatics still managed to find them. After sneaking up on the understandably upset and embarrassed Mary, they gave the baby completely inappropriate gifts. Thus began a tradition of giving largely unwanted items to people on this special day. Only one of the three presents was even appreciated by Mary; that, of course, being the gold. And that is why today the only gift most people are excited to receive is money. Enjoy!
