So, there I was minding my own business (which at this time of year means listening to and reading about all things Christmas) and the very funny (I think) passage made me laugh out loud.  Sr. Rita thought I was nuts.  (Not for the first time.)

… and by the way, not to be annoying and strident, but why do gingerbread and snow personnel always have to be men? If Christmas isn’t womanly, then what holiday is? Is it not, after all, about having a baby? And are not the best Christmas trees blessed with big hips?
