Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

The true spirit of Christmas ðŸŽ„

We’re all adults here. Let’s face it: most of us are going to have a really crappy weekend getting ready for the big day. If you have to leave your house, you’re going to be rubbing up against the frenzy. Or maybe you’ve procrastinated like you do every year and you must throw yourself into the Christmas volcano. Come on — nobody really likes the taste of eggnog, and no amount of rum makes it palatable (half your daily cholesterol limit in one cup too). I can’t even bring myself to listen to Christmas music till — you guessed it — Christmas!

If you’re like me you’ll love this number. Can I see a show of hands?

    I just needed a few groceries and to get them had to deal with Christmas frenzy in the form of heavy traffic on the roads and the multitudes of grocery shoppers in the store. Nice to see your post because that’s exactly what I was thinking. It sure did improve my mood!

      It does help, in a funny way, doesn’t it? Gives voice to our inner curmudgeons.

    I always carry a baseball bat when shopping at Christmas. Never a line or anything.

    If you wear your Halloween costume people get out of your way.

    I like eggnog … Especially spiked eggnog 😉

      You must have an exceptional palate. 😛 (I’d just prefer the booze without the eggy stuff…)

    Perfect! We don’t have the same frenzy here on the island, but I still have awful memories of too many Christmases spent working retail … in a bookstore, where you might suppose all customers would be filled with good cheer. They weren’t. I still have a hard time working up any Christmas spirit. Being surrounded now by palm trees and white sand rather than pine trees and white snow certainly helps to put me in a better mood, though.
