You made me dig up that twenty year old 'fortune' program, with its 55000+ lines fortune collection, finding a few season related pearls. Like this one, attributed to Dave Barry:

Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice. In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukka" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukka!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!"

I didn't find the one I was sure was there: Again, Dave Barry talking about the perfect gift - the Christmas fruitcake, so heavy that you would need a chopper to cut it. But you don't need to; none ever eats that stuff, but store it until next Christmas for use as a gift to another relative ...

I am sure that was in some Fortune database, but apparently not in the one I saved. If any of you dig up another old fortune base and find it in there, please tell me!

Another food related cookie (some serve it for Christmas):

Yeah, if it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck -- shoot it.
