Re: 2089: "Christmas Eve Eve"

December 23rd is Christmas Adam Someone already made that joke: Someone once proposed that December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve, should be called "Christmas Adam." Because it comes before Eve and is generally unsatisfying. :P I wrote my joke a few decades ago. Out of curiosity I se...
