As many as 32 people were killed today in what is believed to be the first strike in the annual War on Christmas.

Defense forces were on high alert as the calendar turned to December, with violence seemingly intensifying every year that month. However, it was not enough to counter the aerial attack from Happy Holidays, as several missiles killed those singing traditional Christmas carols.

It is unclear how Christmas celebrators will retaliate, but they are said to be in consultation with Bill O’Reilly now on how to best proceed.
