All The Good Origin Stories Taken, Wolverine Should Have Been Virgin Born.
I'm a bit of a humbug, really. I've never liked Christmas, at least not as anything remotely resembling an adult, or at least with intentions of becoming one. And, truth be told, I've never resembled an adult and wanted to be one at the same time in my entire life. But that's a side note. So, I don't like Christmas. I have, though, recently begun to get kind of excited about a 'secular Christmas' and years and years from now, celebrants of Christmas will explain to the unfamiliar (Extraterrestrials? Arabs? Amnesiacs? People in Wyoming?) that Christmas is when we all get together and celebrate peace, giving, and wonder. For their own sake. I don't like the commercialization of the Holiday. Let's get rid of that, thank you.
