“How December 2020 is going to look like: ‘Merry Crisis and a Happy New Fear‘“

"Merry crisis and a happy new fear”—a pun on “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”—has been printed on many images. The saying is from graffiti that was painted on the Bank of Greece during the 2008 Civil Unrest in Greece, and was reported in The International Herald Tribune on November 19, 2008.

The 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic and the George Floyd protests made the saying especially appropriate for 2020. “How december 2020 is going to look: ("MERRY CRISIS AND A HAPPY NEW FEAR” graffiti is shown.—ed.) was posted on Twitter by Sercan. on July 30, 2020. “How December 2020 is going to look like: Merry crisis and a Happy new FEAR” was posted on Twitter by Lakhveer Sekhon on August 1, 2020.


Wikipedia: Merry Crisis
“Merry Crisis” or “Merry Crisis and a Happy New Fear” is a slogan that appeared as graffiti in Athens during the 2008 Civil Unrest in Greece. Earlier, a picture of such graffiti appeared on the cover of Vavel Magazines’s 2007 Christmas special. The British anarchist publication Occupied London states that it was “one of the main slogans of the 2008 revolt.”

ATHENS, Greece—Masked youths set up burning barricades and threw fire bombs and chunks of marble at riot police Thursday, after a protest march erupted into new fighting that sent Christmas shoppers and panicked parents fleeing to safety.

Mothers snatched children from a carousel in the main square. Waiters stumbled from cafes choking on tear gas fired by police at rioters trying to burn the capital’s Christmas tree, replaced just days ago after another tree was torched.

After two weeks of unrelenting rioting set off by the fatal police shooting of a teenager, a slogan spray-painted outside the Bank of Greece summed up the mood as Greeks prepared for Christmas: “Merry crisis and a happy new fear.”
