A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Staves 1-3.

"...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" (13).

In this famous quote, Scrooge isn't necessarily saying he hates Christmas, he just doesn't see the point of it. 'Humbug' means a hoax or jest. In Scrooge's mind, when people say 'Merry Christmas', they don't actually mean it because as he states earlier, it's just another day and people lose money.

Bah!
