The cast of the TV Show Scrubs have done a number of satirical looks at various things. The did a voice over of "Charlie Brown’s Christmas" and Dr. Cox does the Linus soliloquy which originally was the story of Christmas from the gospel. This post-modern version [IMHO] goes like this:

" "You can stuff your stocking with shiny little toys, but until that stocking is filled with friendship, loyalty, love and devotion, well it’s just plumb empty. And no, you can’t purchase those things at Laura Ashley’s. And no, you can’t win them in the Redbook Giveaway Extravaganza. And gee! I’m sorry if these aren’t things you can wind up and watch spin for eight hours.

Let me make this exceptionally clear! Christmas is about love. You can’t live without other peoples love. Not during Christmas, not ever. So got spend that time with those friends and family. And if they laugh at you, laugh with them. And if they laugh at you again, hit ’em and go find some new friends.

But, for the love of God, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and his technocolored dreamcoat don’t ever, ever forget this newbie, you have to give love to get love. So start giving, Now!"
