In the case of the United States and other parts of the world, it is not really the Happy Holidays or a Merry Christmas at all. This is due to the state of the world economy and the state of recession. In parts of the world, it is far worse. For those in Uganda, the people have received presents in the form of pain, suffering, and violent death.
The charity known as Caritas said that the rebel group called the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) murdered
over four-hundred people. The massacre had taken place on Christmas Day. The rebels attacked a Catholic church in which a concert was going on. The LRA carried out this attack in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
According to witnesses, it was a savage massacre.
However, the LRA said that it was not responsible for these atrocious acts. In the case of Uganda, it was more of spreading the “Holiday Fear” rather than the “Holiday Cheer.” The massacres show that pain, suffering, psychological shock, and death do count as holiday presents in the darkest sense.
