That's right, we're going straight to hell!
I'm not sure if you realize this, but people like us get a special hell. We're going to be spending eternity with a group of people who didn't show the proper respect for the birth of their savior by waiting until his birthday to lavish one another with presents. We're roasting for all of eternity with people who said, literally, "Aw, fuck it! I want my presents now!"
