Whether you like it or not, the holidays are upon us. To all of us at 5 Alarm, it means driving around the construction crew erecting the endless rows of bleachers for the Rose Bowl Parade and wishing upon a star that a parking space will be spared from all of the holiday shoppers. Oh what fun it is to drive in a one lane traffic jam!
But alas, the holidays are like everything else in life: They are what you make of them. Let’s look at the bright side, shall we? Christmas lights makes any house look cool. Candy canes? Love ’em. Mistletoe takes the fear out of stealing a kiss from the one you have long admired. PRESENTS. Yes, it deserves all caps. Giving and receiving mind you! Time off work? Hallelujah! All of this plus celebrating your faith and family to boot. OK, family togetherness is sometimes the root of holiday haters. For all of you who are the Meg Griffin from Family Guy in your brood, just remember there are always awesome movie marathons on any given TV channel. A Christmas Story, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Bad Santa, The Muppet Christmas Carol – all great flicks that will buy you a couple hours away from any unpleasant family dealings!
We’ve got some great new holiday music to go along with that eggnog and chestnuts roasting by an open fire. C’mon, get happy!
