Workshop Media’s Jon Bailey takes a look at some of the quirks, annoyances and pet peeves of the Christmas Season in Workshop’s Christmas Humbugs!
Yeah. The Christmas hats. Those miserable scraps of tissue paper that are supposed to represent (depending on which source you consult) either the crowns worn by the Biblical Magi, or the decorative headgear worn during the Roman Saturnalia celebrations. Whichever is correct, they completely fail. They are always either slightly too big, so they slip down over your eyes every 30 seconds, or slightly too small, so they rip as you put them on and slowly fall apart over the following half an hour.
But that’s not all, oh no! The worst thing about the hats, the very worst thing, is that I’m not allowed to simply not wear one! How is that a thing? Why should I be accused of ruining Christmas just because I don’t want to wear a stupid, pathetic, flimsy little hat?! And that is exactly the problem if you are, like me, a little bit grumpy and borderline antisocial. You ruin Christmas for everyone by not joining in. that is just not fair. There is no consideration for Christmas being ruined for me, year after year, by being forced to partake in these little rituals.
