Gloria in Excelsis Lileks!


I have a piece in the upcoming NRODT about the latest Scrooge-y attempts to quash Christmas in the public square. In it, I suggest that mockery of the killjoys is a great way to fight them (N.B., this is the first, and probably last, time that Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo will appear in Bill Buckley’s magazine). Anyway, James Lileks has the anti-anti-Christmas screed to end them all today. Read this, give the man an “Amen!”, then pass it on to everyone on your Christmas card e-list. Lileks makes vinegar slide down like wassail. Man oh Manischewitz, he’s good.
