I love Christmas!
I guess I am kind of a ‘romantic’ kind of guy. (I really hope that doesn’t make me gay.) I love the lights, the anticipation, the old movies, just the joy of the whole thing. To all of those people who don’t like Christmas or just are indifferent – let me tell you – just get over it. It is a great time of year. It is fun! Have fun, eat a lot. Watch cool old movies – I will tell you of the best ones in a minute. Go see lights. Go out at least once with some people that you love and enjoy (or just that ‘one’) Get dressed up, go see a show, enjoy just being out in the cold.

One other thing that I will recommend to everyone is a tradition that my family: this is just for the four of us, mom, dad, sean and myself. But each year we draw names for stockings. So each of us has one of the others’ stocking. So on Christmas morning the highlight are the stockings. We always try to do some creative thinking and themes or something like that. For example one year I had Sean and I did a whole writing theme for him, because he was into writing songs and such. So I put all kinds of pens, journals, pencils, anything like that that I could find. It is fun. Anyway, it is a cool way to mix it up a little bit and make it a little more personal and fun, rather than your mom just throwing a bunch of candy and an apple into your stocking.

Ok. Here is a line-up of great Christmas movies: (in no particular order.)

White Christmas (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye); The Muppet’s Christmas Carol (Kermit, Ms. Piggy and Michael Kane); The Little Shop Around the Corner (Jimmy Stewart – THIS MOVIE ROCKS, let me talk about it. We all know of ‘You’ve Got Mail’; that was a remake of this movie. Jimmy Stewart is awesome.) Holiday Inn (Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire); of course Elf and The Grinch (with Will Farrell and Jim Carrey respectively.) These are my Christmas standards. I understand that this is not a comprehensive list and most will disagree with my neglect of: A Christmas Story (I hate this movie) and It’s A Wonderful Life. But you know what, it is my list – so there.

Well, Merry Christmas to all! And to all a good night!!!
