Fa la la la la la la la la
O.k. so it is officially December 1, which means I can spread my holiday cheer without pissing off the entire neighborhood. I decorated my house at the beginning of November (I know, I know). But even I do not condone humming Christmas tunes and waving to strangers until December 1.
Why so happy you may ask?! Holiday boozing! Not that I am a big drinker, but for some reason Christmas is the only time of year that waking up and drinking rum for breakfast is seemingly justifiable. What better way to make your friends sing Christmas carols and stumble around the tree… get them Christmas drunk, maybe even in the morning.
