An American Christmas Tradition

An American Christmas Tradition

The American Advent Season commenced on November 25th as faithful millions observed the solemn rites of Black Friday. Yesterday marked another ceremonial milestone, the annual Adoration of the Air Jordans. In the pre-dawn hours, reverent crowds assembled before great cathedral shopping mall doors for the ceremonial yelling, pushing, shoving and punching as clouds of spicy incense wafted through the air.
