Here at Audere Magazine, we aren’t all Christians, or Christmas-celebrators (though many of us are), but we all recognize that it’s here, and we have a few words on it. Here are some essential reads (well, maybe not “essential,” but they are “reads”) from our pages.
First, what would Christmas be without Christmas comic strips? Well, it turns out that it would be a lot less racist. So we scoured our collection and managed to find an old Christmas comic strip that isn’t racist, and here it is.
Alon Preiss is certainly not a Christian, or a believer of any stripe, but sometimes the Christmas spirit still wins him over, for a while anyway.
Finally, Steven S. Drachman has a few words about the original War on Christmas, and it’s not want you think. (Psst, spoiler alert: it started with the Pilgrims.) But he says go ahead and enjoy it anyway. Read more here.
We are going to take a few days off, if we can control ourselves, and try to relax and stay drunk. See you next year.
