I guess there’s nothing left to do but scratch out this simple holiday wish for you, my friend, who is checking in with me today and a lot of other days.
I never liked that “Have yourself a merry little Christmas song.” It sounds condescending to me.
So I say, “Have yourself a big, noisy, wild and wonderful Christmas!” Throw wrapping paper all over the place! Play with the kids! Try wearing the Christmas stockings… on your head, if necessary. Eat too much, drink too much, and stay too freakin’ long! For all the build-up, the day passes entirely too quickly, so make it memorable. .
And before you go, may I once again present my all-time favorite Christmas carol, courtesy of South Park.
