Pope Asks: When Is Christmas?

Pope Benedict XVI
In a shocking internecine feud, the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury clashed on when Christmas Day is. Other denominations joined in, causing chaos and mayhem, with families celebrating the birth of Christ on different days, depending on their church.

One shopkeeper moaned that he wasn't sure when to start the sales. A mother-of-two said that she couldn't cook turkey, as it wouldn’t keep until Sunday for her heathen son.

A spokesman for the Greek Orthodox Church chimed into the controversy, "Ha, we were right all along, and it should be in January anyway."

A spokesman for the Christian Evangelists said, "Biblical Christianity is the only way, so that’s sometime in July." He then exposed the "Christmas decorations mafia, who have their hands on the throats of Christian civilisation."

The Muslim community, not wanting to be drawn into this sectarian, ecumenical debate, pulled back and smugly said, "No religion in the's all politics."

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death

— Thomas Paine
