Not everyone spends time with family on Christmas, and a lot of people do spend time on Christmas with family and friends. We don’t want to guess what you are doing, because that could make you feel bad or stress you out. We don’t want to do that, Christmas is supposed to be the ultimate day-off, family or no family.
But, there is nothing worse than Christmas on Saturday. That is getting the shaft, big time. Weekends are already days of rest, but we make the best of it and take Monday off.
What is there to do on Christmas? Well, a lot of nothing, and a lot of blissful sitting on your ass eating and watching TV. We give you 10 things to do today to get away from the Blues, keep the good times going, or whatever you choose.
10) Watch Home Alone.
The reason being that if you are of our generation, is there the better kids movie? Everybody wanted to be Culkin. He was the idol. And he wins. We all win.
9) Watch NBA basketball.
The reason being that the NBA is boring from October to April, except today, because they actually show a variety of games that are good. Lebron, Kobe, all good.
Alcohol. Why not? Only if you are going to be blissful about it. Don’t be angry drunk Christmas guy. You ruin everything for everyone.
7) Start a political conversation at the dinner table.
For instance: “What is your opinion of abortion and gay rights?” Just try it, you have conservative relatives, put it in their court.
6) Bring someone of a different race to your dinner.
If you are black, bring someone white. If you are Japanese, bring a Latino. It just changes up traditions. And it could be fun for the old folks to adjust to 2010 on the fly.
5) Go see “Black Swan.”
Going to the movies is underrated. Its crowded and lots of sick people will be there, but its a good way to celebrate the Holidays by spending money.
4) Watch “Elf.”
You need one Will Ferrell event.
3) Watch “Christmas Vacation.”
Chevy Chase, Margo, Todd, the best Christmas movie ever.
2) Watch 24 hours straight of “A Christmas Story.”
All 24. Don’t get up. At all. Just sit there. Have things brought to you.
1a) Open other people’s gifts.
Don’t tell them. Pass out the gifts, put a few extras in your pile, open them up, and cry when they are taken away from you. Do this with the young kids, they cry the most, but they feel the worse when you cry back at them.
1b) Wear your pajamas all day.
Its underrated to wear actual clothes when you go to family members houses. This is your chance to go Spector and Michael Jackson on everyone. Wear silk or linen PJs all day.
