Christ the Savior is Dead

My sibling Alison on hearing that the Pope is rescheduling midnight mass for 10 p.m.:

"Who cares? It's not like we know if Jesus died exactly at midnight anyways."

And later, a while after being corrected:

"Did you know Jesus didn't die on Christmas?"

Look, I don't care if you're not religious - that's not the part that bothers me. It's a little bizarre that Alison has gone to church on Christmas Eve every year - many of those years attending two different services back-to-back - and never picked up on what event what was being commemorated, but whatever. As a pop culture reference, however, it is practically unforgivable. Think about all of the songs and references that are literally everywhere this time of year.

Rest in Peace, Jesus.
