Chesterton, Christmas and Turkeys

Chesterton has a way of tying together Christmas, turkeys, vivisection, and joyless atheism. His main theme is to keep Christmas at Christmas, as a surprise that should spring upon us, and rejoice, not in half-or-quarter measure, but in full, for the fullness of the days of this season of grace. And a merry one may it be, for one and all.
