The holiday season has always been a favorite mental escape for me. I am a kid at heart, so, why not take advantage of the season that is designed for kids? Presents? Christmas trees? Sugar Cookies? Ceel-Lo Green's Christmas album outdoing Kenny G's?-not for kids. Pepperminty and Cinnamony aromatherapy things?
But first! The more serious side of the Christmas season in the United States of America: Remembering the true meaning of it.
For the rest of us who also enjoy Santa, elves, reindeer, and magic, and shopping and inclusiveness of others who are not fundamentally Christian but fundamentally loving and good, and Godly, who come with traditions and festivals and reasons for the season that happen to coincide with Christmas... I say... "Happy Holidays!"
I dare you to do the Buddy the Elf Santa Scream...
Go into a mall where Santa is and yell, "SANTA!!!, OH MY GOD, I Know Him!"
Buddy knows an imposter when he sees one. I'm the saaaame way when it comes to Santa!! You can't smell like beef and cheese and be Santa Claus.
Anyone can teach you about love... but I can make you good at it!
