Don't have a Christmas coronary

Well, as though there were ever any doubt, we learn here that Christmas is the most heart attacky day of the year. Why is that? Everything that makes American Christmas what it is contributes to the cardiac joy.

Let me quote: "The weather, stress, depression and overindulgence are often considered contributing factors. Researchers say people are less likely to get medical attention during the holidays."

A comma needs to appear after "depression" in that first sentence, but in the spirit of winter solstice, I'll let that aggregious error go.

Don't think Boxing Day is your reprieve. It's the second most cardiac day of the year. It's residual Christmas still out to get you.

New Year's is third. Yeah, Christmas lingers a long time, but not to worry: Those credit card bills will appear shortly.

Maybe that heart attack's not such a bad thing afterall.
