As we all go about our holiday shopping, for Chanukah, for Christmas, for Kwanza, for the Winter Solstice, for New Years, and for the Evil Chipmunk, we sometimes forget what the season is really about. Some people will tell you that it is the season of giving, of caring, and of jolliness, I am here to tell you otherwise. Every year as the holiday season rolls around so does the lovely holiday of Final Exams. Now some of you might say “but Final Exams isn’t a holiday”, well you are wrong. They come out about the same time of every year just like other holidays and there is joyous celebration caused by them (when they end). Like other holidays Final Exams causes much preparation even to the point of people staying up all night to be ready for the holiday, I can vouch for this because when my friends and I went to the Rutgers Busch campus dinning hall at midnight for the early breakfast the place was packed. So as you can see you should also give presents to weary college students after they have completed all their finals. I would like to wish everyone very happy holidays, a merry Final Exams, and to remind you to beware of the evil chipmunks.
