Forgive me if I get a little Grinchy and want to smack all the little Whos in Whoville, but I am so sick of all the holiday themed ads, commercials, tv shows and other corporate American schtick that passes for holiday cheer but is really just a badly disguised quest for merchandising.
It makes me want to either:
- Take a cruise to somewhere that has beaches, palm trees and cabana boys
- Close all the windows, lock all the doors and hide under the covers until Jan. 2nd
- Revert back to the past and live in a log cabin, cut down my own tree, decorate it with popcorn and cranberries, make my own gifts out of logs and Ma's Ingalls' old drapes, then hand a mug of hot cocoa to Pa Ingalls
- Convert to some cult religion that forbids red and green, holly, and jingle bells
