Did you know that there are more suicides in December than any other month? I think I have discovered the ultimate reason. Upon doing a bunch of completely involuntary research, I have come to the conclusion that repeated prolonged exposure to generic piped-in christmas music can completely destroy anyone's will to live.

You see, Christmas music in itself is largely crappy. Continuous Christmas music is brutal. Then comes the ulitmate hell ... You see in today's overly politically correct World many places are now basically afraid of playing any even remotely religious Christmastime song, for fear of complaints. The problem with that is that, once you remove all of the remotely religious songs out of the rotation, there are literally only like 10 freaking songs left to play on the radio. Hundreds of truly Godawful versions of 10 generic songs. Do you have any clue how many different version of Frosty the Snowman or Jingle Bell Rock there is? Are you aware that the vast majority of the version are downright painful to hear? Every day I have to listen to it at work, my urge to turn my boxcutters onto my wrists grow ...

If there are any psychopaths out there that actually likes Christmas music, I hereby declare that you all must be put into a prison cell and than exposed to a continuous loop of loud generic Christmas music. I guarentee you that, within 24 hours, you will be found in the corner of the room in the fetal position trying to stab out your eardrums with your fingertips ... GUARENTEED.

ow and of course:

De herdertjes lagen bij nachte
zij lachen bij nacht in het veld
Zij hielden vol trouwe de wachte
zij hadden hun schaapjes geteld

daarrrrrrr hoorden zij engelen zingen

Damn straight!

My club playing soccer was started by a bunch of refugees from Dutchland, and it was called, interestingly enough, Ajax.

Pretty close to the old guys who started the club. Us football deprived natives said it more like eye-yaks.

I wonder how the locals say the name of the town in Ontario.
