I looked up Bah in the dictionary and it means expressing scorn, disgust, and disbelief. I then looked up Humbug. That word means fraud, sham, imposter.
This little phrase is best remembered by all as what the character Ebenezer Scrooge says in the story the Christmas Carol. Scrooge became disillusioned by Christmas. He stopped believing in Christmas. He gave it a hearty Bah Humbug!
What does this little phrase mean to you?
Do you ever feel that way about Christmas?
Do you perhaps think that other things, besides the holiday can be given the Bah Humbug, (like fairy tales, and nursery rhymes, and Disney stories)?
Let's have a lighthearted discussion about Bah Humbug.
