Another Reason to Simply Trade Out the Holiday Season for a Three-Week Orgy

Three sentences.

Bud Williams, city councilor in Springfield, Mass., stood in the court square earlier this week and participated in a holiday tradition.

“Jesus is the reason for the season,” Williams said at a Tuesday ceremony, according to MassLive.com.

His remarks wouldn’t really be notable, except that Williams was speaking at a menorah lighting ceremony, to mark the beginning of Hanukkah.

Sarah Larimer of the Washington Post tries to explain those sentences for us. Nor do we envy her the task.
