I think it's really important to remember the reason for the season - whether you share the Christian faith or not. At the heart of Christianity are three words: love, peace and forgiveness. My thinking is that over indulging in any of these things is unlikely to result in stress, debt - or indigestion.
You know what's lacking at this here Festival Fringe? Forgiveness. That's what. Good old-fashioned, out-of-style, ridiculous, uncynical, dare-I-say "Christian" forgiveness. I read a review lately for David Whitney; in this year's show he addresses his head butting an audience member some Fringes ago. The reviewer begins by saying they intend to make fair judgment of his efforts, despite the original offence being "unforgivable".
