Merry X-Mas 2012!

I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful and merry X-Mas this year. May Robot Santa spare your life this year, regardless of what you celebrate this time of year!

Robot Santa

Robot Santa

The brilliance of Futurama’s X-Mas holiday is that it is not only mandatory, but also completely secular and non-denominational. While Robot Santa may have been initially constructed to serve as a proxy for the Saint Nicholas figure of Christian mythology, he transcended that role. Due to a bug in his programming he judges all people of the world naughty, and thus deserving of extermination. He doesn’t discriminate based on faith or nationality – he is an equal opportunity killing machine.

So in the Futurama universe, even those who never celebrated Christmas are more or less forced to celebrate X-Mas. After all, even if your preferred holiday is Chanukah, Kwanza or something else entirely, you still need a place to cower in fear on December 25th. Robot Santa’s reign of terror brings together people of all faiths and creeds. It is quite beautiful in the messed up, disturbing way.

Anyways, best wishes and happy holidays! We will return to regular programming after later this week.
