Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! How is everybody doing today? I hope all of your shopping is done, and all of your cookies have been baked, because Christmas is just two days away now. I love the anticipation in the days leading up to Christmas. Even though I am an adult I still have an extremely hard time falling asleep the night before Christmas because I can’t wait to see all of the presents and to just lounge around the house Christmas day. My family and I take part in some unique Christmas traditions. We like to do a lot of re-enactments. After we get sloshed on egg nog and Christmas ale, we do a rendition of grandma actually getting run over by a reindeer. Along with that, we put on performances of the birth of Christ, and the twelve days of christmas. You would be surprised at how easy it is to find 8 maids a milking.
I finally got all of my Christmas shopping done in the last few days, and it is always such a relief. I have a hard time shopping for people because I don’t like to buy gift cards (I feel like it’s a bailout) and I don’t usually ask people what they want. I like to try and find unique gifts and this year I found some good ones. My sister is getting the Chinese version of the snuggie.
My mom is a big Hillary Clinton fan, and she was pretty upset when she didn’t win the Democratic Party nomination for president. So, I got her the Hillary Clinton nutcracker doll. Nothing says Merry Christmas like nutcrackers!
My dad is always the hardest to shop for, but this year I thought it would be nice if I helped him find a new hobby. That’s why I got him the “Ventriliquism for Dummies” book.
Well that’s all I got for today. I hope everyone has a great Christmas! I’ll probably make a post Christmas day sometime, but it will most likely just be a Christmas greeting with a funny picture or something. So I guess I’ll get back into the full swing of things next week. I leave you with a festive haiku….
