At Weekend Words, it’s never too early, or too late, to start celebrating the holidays:

“I envy people who drink. At least they know what to blame everything on.”

—Oscar Levant

“I drink to make other people more interesting.”

—George Jean Nathan

“There is no difference between someone who eats too little and sees Heaven and someone who drinks too much and sees snakes.”

—Bertrand Russell

“Christmas at my house is always at least six or seven times more pleasant than anywhere else. We start drinking early. And while everyone else is seeing only one Santa Claus, we’ll be seeing six or seven.”

—W. C. Fields
