It’s the most wonderful time of the year to stay inside your house because people will cut you for a parking space at the mall.

It’s that time of year to cozy up on the couch while making my husband watch holiday movies, drink hot cocoa with Bailey’s, and eat yummy shortbread cookies.

The time of year when my husband hangs Christmas lights up on the house using a very questionable wooden ladder, a la’ Clark Griswold, that we got after one of our many moves. The moving guys didn’t want to bother finding the rightful owner so they just gave it to us.

Someone must have a hit out on my hubby since it’s the ladder from the depths of hell. Aaand despite it being shady and very wobbly with screws hanging out of it that aren’t attached to the steps of the ladder like they should be, he uses it anyway with a bum foot that he broke 4 years ago that still gives him problems.

It’s also the time of year when I’m especially thankful to shop online, from the safety of my own home, instead of buying gifts in shops that Christmas zombies inhabit. They are out for blood and will eat you alive for a scarf that’s on sale.

Recently, my hubby went to get us lunch at Chipotle and the closest one to our house is at the mall. He was gone for over an hour and when he came back home, he was looking pretty traumatized.

I asked him what was wrong, not even thinking about the shopping apocalypse, and he said “You sent me to. the. mall. Everyone is out Christmas shopping. There are crazzzy people out there”. My bad.

I know the holiday season is for giving but I would rather not receive what people are doling out. During the holiday, people give you the finger and play bumper death cars for a parking spot.

Then you have to deal with the chaos inside the store. People give you a hard time while ramming you with their carts and they stand in the middle of the freaking aisle so you can’t pass.

You’re given the crowds and you’re also given the person who lets one rip in the middle of the crowds. Since you have nowhere to go, you’re stuck smelling the smells of the season. Fa La La La La.

All of that giving leaves my heart all warm and fuzzy.

Pomplamoose – Deck The Halls – Stick around for their vlog that starts around the 2:35 mark. If you give a book, you can get their awesome mp3 Christmas album. This is something that’s worth giving and getting.

*I am in no way being paid or being threatened by zombies to promote the Richmond Book Drive or iLoveSchools. I just want every child to have a chance to get an education, and possibly fall in love with reading like I did when I was younger, as well as having the proper school supplies.

    LMAO!
    My favorite is the person who stands in the middle of the aisle and seems completely oblivious to the existence of anyone else in the world… And just… stands there…

    Your poor Hubby. Mine won’t even go out for milk these days.

      Yep, that one drives me crazy too. Even when I say “excuse me” 50 times, they’ll just stand there.

    It’s true… Christmas so often seriously brings out the worst/crazy in people. I have thanked the universe for empty Wal-mart at 2am here, just for the peace and quiet.

    (That’s a special Christmas thing here in Ontario, Canada, the 24 hour Wal-mart).

    But even then? I tried making friendly conversation with at least 4 people and they were rude as hell. I just don’t get it. Merry frikken xmas.

    Found you from The Blogess.

      I love this time of year but it doesn’t have anything to do with the crazy people out shopping and the so-called Christmas spirit. 😉

    I did almost all my shopping online and it was pure Heaven.

    I hate that people can get so selfish during this time of year.

      If I can’t buy something online this time of year, I pretend it doesn’t exist. 🙂
