More hilarity from Edger

The fact that Christmas comes so close to the winter solstice is, indeed, a little fishy. More than a few scholars suggest that celebrations for the two occasions are linked, in a more or less muddy fashion. Chris Ray at Edger makes fun of the not so recent idea of "the war on Christmas" in a hilarious parody of the types of things that Christians say, but coming from an original pagan reveler!
Back when I was a young soul, Christmas really meant something- the communal slaughter of cattle, the unbridled indulgence in drink-sodden orgy, the tying of the ol’ family sunpost to prevent our beloved Sol from escaping during the winter months. Why, even Sol Invictus himself seems evicted from his own favorite feast day by these bawling bandits of Beiwe, all in the name of “political correctness” and “Jesus” and all that!

Check out the whole thing at Edger!
