Merry Christmas

“What if Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store?

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

“A thought-crime is a thought-crime,” the authorities said,

when they came through his door

and black-bagged his head.

The first couplet comes via Dr Seuss, from The Grinch, which is probably one of ‘those’ Christmas stories that’ll last forever. 

If you haven’t read it, do. Read it to your kids.

Don’t rely on the Jim Carrey-ed version. 

The rest sums up what Crimbo ends up like, most of the time.
