Look, all us COG’s have been working hard and the economy sucks…I get that. But that’s no reason why we can’t get our act together and enjoy the holidays. Nobody works any harder than me, and Mrs. Claus is pestering the living crap out of me to get the outdoor decorations in place too. If you supervise people, don’t try to get any sympathy from me because I have hundred of little eles that can be very testy.
All that being said, here are some tips to help you get into the holiday mood:
Listen to some cool holiday tunes- I know some malls and radio stations began playing Christmas music before Halloween, and that’s just wrong. Now is the time to tune into the 24 hour Christmas stations and rock the night away. One of my all time favorites is Silent Night by Stevie Nicks and of course White Christmas by a COG that has passed, Bing Crosby. Oh, BTW, I,m sorta sick of Santa Claus is coming to town, but go ahead if it makes you happy.
Party….there are plenty around! Partake!
Watch a Christmas themed movie. We all have our favorite but one of mine is A Christmas Story and of course the old standard It’s a Wonderful Life is a great one. If a movie brings you down…for godsake don’t watch it.
Decorate your pad. Put up some festive lights and a tree. Yes a tree! It will and some ambiance and help put you in the mood. Don’t worry about making it look like Martha Stewart decorated it…just get it up. (Sorry, no pun intended)
Finally, donate to help others. This year the need is greater than it has been in a long time. There are many families going without and you can help. Donate cash at every red bucket. Attend as many fund-raising events as you can. Work at a soup kitchen or church event. Volunteer to help in whatever way you can. After all…isn’t this the true meaning of Christmas?
Listen, I think the elves are getting out of control. I need to get back to work. Christmas is only two weeks from tomorrow!
Take an opportunity to tell me one thing you have done this year in the comments section below. This way I will know you’ve been nice.
