Humbug Pin

Acquired in a thrift store
in Wheaton, circa 1980?

I'm not a Scrooge, really. I just get tired of Christmas carols by Thanksgiving, especially after they've been playing everywhere since right after Halloween. This tiny pin is my quiet protest. It's also an expression of solidarity with people who get Christmas rammed down their throat even if it's not part of their theology.

Christmas is the time of year I like to think about, and to show, how fortunate I feel to have the friends and family that I do. And that's something that anyone can do, regardless of religion.
