Jimmy Hogg: Figgy PuddingChristmas traditions are something almost everyone (even this secular Jew) can relate to, but the holidays were a little different for a Santaphobic young Hogg; rather than milk and cookies, his family left Father Christmas mince pie and sherry, so Hogg simply assumed St. Nick was a problem drinker like his parents. His free-association monologue makes tenuous connections between a catalog of comic memories, all revolving around the awe and terror that Xmas can inspire. If you ever desperately wanted He-Man's Castle Greyskull playset but got an off-brand knockoff instead, or pretended you were actually playing the demonstration mode on your Casio keyboard, you'll identify with Hogg's hysterically hyperactive holiday tales.
