Winter-een-mass is a weird, unearthly
gamer-holiday, created to celebrate Gamer Spirit
. In short, it's a holiday when we play all of the games we got for christmas
A major acting theorem is that if Jesus Christ gets the entire month of december for his birthday, can't gamers get just a week, if not a whole month anyway. Therefore, the season lasts all of January, the holiday itself is the 25th to 31st.
Gift-giving is not encouraged, but if you must, make the gifts under $10. Remember, Winter-een-mas isn't about stuff, it's about each other. And also videogames.
The holiday was created by Tim Buckley, (also known as Absath) author of the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del. The comic features a mentally unstable videogamer named Ethan, as well as several tributes to the linux nerd inside us all.
