THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS
1. Which religion or faith do you belong to, if any? Originally a devout, strict protestant but not anymore.
2. What is your opinion of seasonal greetings and salutations? It's just being courteous. Just like 'Good Morning', it is expected and nice to say, but meaningless.
3. Holiday music on the radio? Sure...I can turn that off.
4. What is your policy for exchanging gifts? Damn...a personal 'policy' for gifts? No...I think that a gift should be given when it is truly meant. And don't ever give me a gift card. It's like charity, and I am not a fan.
5. Gift cards/family update letters are... See above for gift cards...family update letters are fine. Doesn't torque me one way or the other. I have one friend who makes the holiday letter entertaining, and I look forward to it. It's more of a 'you won't believe how I fucked up last year' kind of thing. As for the ones that list all of the great things that the kids have done, or how they are gonna be the next prez...I won't do it, and I can just throw it away after a few minutes. Let them brag...doesn't hurt.
6. Christmas cards are... a thing of the past. When it became essential to give, then it became worthless. I send them to people that I love and want to love me...only. And it's a personal card, not one written by Hallmark and gilded by the local printer.
7. Snow is... for skiing. Love it. But, I love nature, so it is to be expected. Even storms...reminds us of how miniscule we really are.
8. Have you been a good little boy or girl? Yes. I am always good.
9. RAPID FIRE FAVORITES:
1. Food - anything, unfortunately.
2. Dessert - cheesecake, but only NY style, and homemade.
3. Song - something romantic...lots of them. But for Christmas songs, I do love the Hallelujah chorus singing Handel's Messiah.
4. Movie - The Santa Clause
5. Tradition - Helping others at Christmas...volunteer.
Christmas sex: What have you done under the mistletoe?
Have you caught daddy kissing Santa Clause? Have you done it a santa
suit? Did you come down the chimney? Just how merry have you made
Santa's helpers? I'm not gonna get the bonus...nothing in my past regarding Christmas sex, but I have done my damnedest to make my special person to have a first climax of the new year as soon as possible after the new year...as the ball drops if I can arrange it.
