A Christmas Ho
A Scrooge. A Grinch. "Bah humbug". These are the typical labels for the joyless ones among us at Christmas. My new terminology for people who, like me, approach the holidays with a jaundiced eye and an arsenal of wisecracks is "Christmas Ho". We're trying to smile, but it comes out looking like Christina Ricci in "The Addams Family Values": lukewarm, half-hearted, lop-sided. If Santa says "HO HO HO", all we can manage is one weak "ho".
