    Humbug! is the word Ebenezer Scrooge uses when anyone talks about christmas, it comes from the book 'A Christmas carol' by charles dickens.
    Here's the book in it's entirety if you get the chance you should read it
    http://www.literature.org/authors/di...ristmas-carol/

    I think the word 'Humbug!' means he does not believe in it

    My favourite saying from it is
    "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!"
    "Mmm... I want you for my wife!"
    "Autom...Sprow...Canna...Tik banna...Sandwol...But no sera smee?"
    "Of course you can. We would love for you to join us."

    if war is the answer, then we are asking the wrong question
