The ART of SURVIVING the HOLIDAY SEASON....

We can all agree, to be sure,
that the Holidays afford us a certain 'latitude' with regard to
"licking our wounds"..
something like 'birthdays', I suppose...
We are granted,
or SEEMINGLY granted..
LICENSE...
License to FEEL VERY, VERY SORRY FOR OURSELVES....
License to be 'GRINCH-LIKE' even...
(for us JEWS we'll call it "SCHMINCH-LIKE"!!)
Bahhh Humbugging
(oyyy GEVALTING!)
 EVERYTHING and EVERYONE in site...
HOWEVER....
Is it REALLY 'license'....'permission' ???
or....
Have we simply ELEVATED this MIS INTERPRETATION....
this MIS GUIDED hoo haa......
 to heights
which turn out to be GREATER
than even OUR own PUNY EXISTENCES ??
Are you following me here ??
Do reindeer fly ??
Are the ANTLERS really SHOFARIM ,
dressed in RED ???
In any case,
we PERSEVERE....
as we seemingly have ZERO CHOICE....
We eat LATKES....
Drink EGGNOG ???
Can somebody tell me PLEASE what
EGGNOG IS ????!!!
Bottom line, my friends ??
Don't have a GOOD SHABBOS.....
have a GREAT SHABBOS !!!
