We’re heading into the holiday season and that makes me happy. It’s the time of year where people don’t look at me like I’m crazy when I can walk down the street in my Christmas sweater, smelling of Gingerbread with that red & green decorative sugar in my hair. They look at me like I’m crazy because I’m not wearing pants and usually babbling excited incoherent sentences involving the words “sugarplums” and “FrankenBerries.” (Hey, you make Christmas treats your way, I’ll make them mine) I’m a big Christmas fan, folks, and I won’t apologize for it. I also won’t apologize for punching John Elway in the nuts if I ever meet him. Still pissed about 1986...and 1987...and 1989. Jackass.
Back to Christmas.
In all seriousness, this year I’m making a vow to give something every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Will you join me? It doesn’t have to be something you buy, it can be a kind word, a hug, or a simple “Dude, you have something in your teeth.” Since I became a father I’ve learned that giving is way better than receiving around Christmas. Will you join me? Will you at least remove your pants in public? I don’t want to be the only one pantsless at the Rockefeller Center Tree lighting...again.
See more of me at www.starspangledcomedy.com, or at the aforementioned tree lighting ceremony.
