Instead of Christmas, Oktoberfest II?

Leave a comment

As my family recovers from its holiday binge, sitting around basically in a stupor until very late every evening, watching TV, I’ve decided that Christmas is too much trouble, really just too much work, and has lingering, deleterious effects, so next year, I’d like to declare that instead of that holiday, we will have Oktoberfest II in December.  Obviously, I don’t like beer, so we can de-emphasize that part, but if everyone can start gathering authentic costume pieces, blue and white decorations, and scheduling someone to sing the Chicken Dance and Edelweiss, that’d be great.  I don’t like the presents or the disappointed looks from getting the wrong ones, the overdone Christmas songs, all the holiday foods.  Just give me some (organic) sausages, sauerkraut, and a Proust.
