Blame the caveman. It all started with caveman. It all started with the caveman.
Historically, when the neanderthals would kill a huge-ass water buffalo they would drag the carcass back to the cave and then declare the massive haul of red meat a cause for a family celebration. The hairy man would grunt, beat his chest and then make the entire clan sit around the fire pit and celebrate his accomplishment.
And we can see just how little has changed with the Cro-Magnons, because now some 20,000 years later we still do the same.
Have a very Merry Christmas.

PS: While we are playing the blame game, if you didn’t have a white Christmas you can blame Al Gore and his global warming conspiracy crew.
