So it’s late but here are my views on Christmas…

Christmas. The holiday Christianized by the ancient Romans, popularized by Santa, commercialized by coke, plagiarized the world over and profited from by Hallmark Greeting cards as well as every single nyama choma eating/roasting  establishment in Kenya. Christmas. A time when journalists and hardcore Christians alike feel the need to reveal the secret behind why we celebrate Christ’s birth in December and not somewhere in June which is the true Jewish winter. When malls and shopping centers urge you to give back to your family and friends. When charities urge you to give back to your communities and bedside Baptists visit an actual church.
