Top Ten Ways to get a Kick out of Christmas
Feeling like a Donder or a Blitzen?
Kick that habit – it’s time to have yourself a merry little Christmas and kick up your heels, Cupid.
Page Larkin’s Top 10 Ways to Get a Kick Out of the Christmas Holiday
1. Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone. Bah, humbug to the PC ‘happy holiday’ malarkey. Go ahead, say Merry Christmas to the people on the bus, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the taxi driver the clerk, the MUNI driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…
2. Wear red. It’s fun, it’s festive and red-quired. Come on, don your red apparel. Everyone should wear at least one red article of clothing. No Santa hats unless you are under 18. Donate the old 75% off, Christmas sweater you got at Mervyns, to the less fortunate. Go, Red!
3. Memorize A Visit from St Nicholas by Clement C Moore and recite it at the drop of a hat. (Bring a hat wherever you go.)
4. Wear mistletoe. No kidding. Buy a sprig of mistletoe and pin it to your lapel or put it on your hat. Be kissed off and on. Yes, Virginia, you can download a picture of mistletoe. There are no rules. See Google images of the kissing tree.
5. Add the quality of jollity and frivolity see Kung Pao Kosher Comedy December 23 through December 26th
6. Go Glow: Do you see what I see? Find the Christmas log on TV for Christmas Day.
7. Laugh and love the funniest, most engaging capella choir,Straight No Chaser . The hilariously talented group sings every Christmas favorite with a twist and a shout. For fun and free music see Pandora.
8. Surround Sound: FM stations are playing non-stop Christmas melodies and standards. Bring out the Bing and dream of a White Christmas.
10. Reach out and contribute – time, money, love, energy….
Do not rest ye merry gentle people; sing, stroll, dance, prance, dream. Call the Scrooges the Grinches, the Donders, and the Blitzens and wish Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
