Friday Fun-Time: “Hollow-Day” Edition!

Ah, December…the month where everyone that you know is suddenly going overboard with shoving holiday cheer down your throat, and blowing so much crap up your arse you feel like you’re going to fart snowflakes, tinsel, and candy canes! All of this hollow “good-will” starts well before Hallowe’en, mind you, so some of us are beyond sick of xmas before the end of November. That, combined with the paranoid screeching about the nonsensical, imaginary “war” on xmas has me completely over the whole “peace on Earth” thing which doesn’t seem to exist, as of late. Believe it or not, I’m not a pessimist – but, I can say that I’m fairly cynical! It isn’t about the glass being “half-full” or “half-empty,” I just look at the reality of a situation and call it what it is.

I’ve been noticing an interesting trend for at least a decade: the amount of “hard-luck” stories explode exponentially during this time of year, and have gotten worse with the popularity of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other “social” media sites. There was a story reported on the local news last month that I wanted to cite, but it is no longer available on the specific local station’s website, meaning it was exactly what I suspected it was – a fake, “hard-luck” story!

No, I’m not in a bad mood; I can certainly think of some recent posts I’ve seen on the blogs of others, and I’m a glowing, golden ray of sunshine, comparatively! In light of that, I’m going to share a few of my own personal Thanksgivoween and Hannukkwaanzamas favourites. For instance, my buddy Brian over at Bonnywood Manor did an awesome post about the “12 Shots of Xmas.” It reminded me of a song that used to be played on the local Seattle radio station KZOK-FM around this time of year, and after years of searching, I managed to find it again – it only took me 13 years to do so, LOL!

(The other video I had up was way funnier, but isn’t allowed to be played here! Click on this link for the better version)

Finally, here are my top three “hollow-day” favourites to close out this post. Hey – I’ve always said that my sense of humour isn’t easily understood, so don’t expect anything warm and fuzzy! Enjoy, and have a great weekend…I have to get back to the New Life Festival activities in Tamriel! Later, gators…

    The last video reminds me of hearing my father struggling with putting together our Christmas toys only Daddy was not as nutty as this guy!

    I inherited Christmas
    Quite frankly I never like the holidays
    But as I’ve gotten older, I have made peace with my demons
    And I have found something there
    That wasn’t there before

      I celebrate things in my own way, now that my only child is on his own. When he lived with me, I did the decorations and the cooking, and put presents under a tiny, musical tree. Never felt the need to cut down a tree and let it die in my living room, even when I was city-bound.

      Now I go outside, inhale the fresh air, and love the trees growing around my house. That, right there, is magick.

    Thanks for the shout out, DS! And that “12 Daze” song is hysterical. (I think there may have been slight peeing on my part…)

      ROFLMAO! The first time I heard that song, I was doing data-entry at a medical office…I had to stop typing because I nearly fell out of my chair! Then I had to run to the bathroom to avoid an accident…so I hear you on the peeing part!

      Hopefully you watched the funnier version…
