My Lackadaisical Christmas Post

Well, it’s December 21st and I’m sitting here by the fire watching it rain outside and drinking my Diet Caffeine-free Coke (because that’s how I roll I live way on the other side of the wild side) and I figured this was as good a time as any to wish you a Merry Christmas.

Wow, that was a long sentence. They don't construct them like that anymore. That's probably a good thing. At any rate, I was going to share with you what makes Christmas special to me. The easy way to say it is that everything about the Christmas season is special (except for the song by Wham!). The décor, looking at Christmas lights, the friends (most of them...) and family you get to see, the food, the music (oh the music) and that expectation you get on Christmas Eve. You know the expectation I'm talking about. Wondering how early you will have to get up the next morning – that was a joke...

I should stop right here and be honest with you...my birthday is on Christmas Eve. That wasn't a ploy to get presents (though if you wanted to, just send me an email...another joke.) So I guess I was wired to like the season. Christmas starts for me on Christmas Eve or the day after Halloween, take your pick. It's all just rolled into one holiday; which is fine with me.

I wanted to type more but I could spend 30 days non-stop writing about Christmas. So, let me wish all of you a very, very Merry Christmas!! I plan to be a more frequent blogger in 2011, so let that serve as a warning to you!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

I could read 30 days worth of your blog! The part about Wham cracked me up! Another great job Michael!

I roll pretty much the same way, except with Diet Caffeine Free Pepsi.

Wishing you an early happy birthday...as I'll probably be fairly busy getting ready for the crowd on that day. Oh, and hoping your stocking is filled with cheese and bacon...but not that Casu marzu stuff, cause that's just gross.
