Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Isn't a humbug a trickster or impostor type person?

A Humbug is staying up for the traditional Christmas Bunch of Cheer and finding ..... batteries instead.

A humbug is a person who tricks. A charlatan, a fake. A dishonest soul.

I had to vote "Bah, humbug" due to the lack of a bag...

A humbug is also known as a caroler.

They go around bugging people with their humming.

Thank you, & Merry Xmas to you too, Woot people!

While I miss the You Know What, it's not the ONLY reason to Woot (although it is the main reason to stay really tuned-in to a Woot-off, I'm sorry to say.)

Still, we've had some good times over the years, so I won't abandon you just because you seem to have forgotten to get me a (chance at a) present.

Merry Christmas to Woot.

Missing Santa's Sack of Crap, but I guess it's time to grow up.

"Bah, Humbug" really means "BAH! Deception!" per most footnotes for *ahem* "Dahl's Chickens'*" A Christmas Carol

I googled it and all I could find was Humbug was Scrooges catch phrase. Then I saw a site humbug end games and went to it and it was an x rated site. Worst part is I sent the link to my daughters phone before I checked it. Stupid stupid. Thought it would b Xmas games. Well merry Xmas everyone and happy holidays and New Year

jjinfl: Thank you, Charlie, and the same to you and yours. We have to stick up for our traditions and the customs of our nation which have been passed down through the years, and ignore the naysayers. Let them miss out on what we have if they want to, but they can't take away the excitement, togetherness, and blessings of the Christmas season from our families, children, and friends if we just keep on keepin' on. Hold fast to Christmas in your hearts and homes; in this society, we need to be grateful for all the joy we can possibly find. At the probable risk of being offensive, I am proud to wish all Woot-ers a Merry Christmas and the best of all good things in 2013.

A humbug is a deception, fraud, falsehood.
So the reply of Bah, humbug means that the holiday is a fraud.
(As I personally believe the extended buying season associated to the season is such a fraud. )

Merry Christmas Woot!

This morning began with unwrapping of the Monkey Bling (as is tradition).

Nothing says I love you better than a Woot monkey with Ice.

Because, if it's in a wiki, it MUST be true! /sarcasm
