Mind the wall

128x128_Xmas_Balls_05In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it “Christmas” and went to church; the Jews called it “Hanukkah” and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say “Merry Christmas!” or “Happy Hanukkah” or (to the atheists) “Look out for the wall!”.
