Where the Only Water Flowing Is the Bitter Sting of Tears, and the Christmas Bells That Ring There Are the Clanging Chimes of Doom

This isn't how we spent our Christmas Night (because, between us, our friends and family are kind of lame), but we love the fact that this was an option: a 12-man steel cage free-for-all at Arena Querétaro. It's an annual tradition, of course, and the Biblical parallels with the 12 Tribes of Israel and the discord amongst the 12 Apostles in the wake of the Resurrection are so obvious as to need no elaboration here.

If the scene about 20 seconds in isn't the most joyful celebration of the Baby Jesus you've ever seen, then we suggest you try opening your black little heart to the True Meaning of Christmas.

[If the lucha isn't your cup of eggnog, this was the other Xmas option we didn't participate in.]

This would of been a great way to spend Christmas. But then again spending Christmas in Mexico, all by it self, would be great. Lucha Libre could be considered one of Mexico's national pastimes.
