Being that I am a salient legend in the field of literary prose, I feel a pivotal sense of urgency in regard to the notion of a fantasy Christmas.
As you are all undoubtedly aware, the word Christmas is compound; an amalgam of two parts: "Chri," and "stmas." Chri, which is Latin for "cry," is the more overt of the two, whereas the origin of stmas is a bit more secluded. Put simply, stmas is an ancient Germanic term deeply rooted in the phrase "sergen taemas," meaning "surgery tamers." Cry, surgery tamers.
This brings me to my Christmas fantasy.
Oft I dream of awaking to find lying in my bed chamber a crying German.
