2016 has been a very weird year. It gave us cotton candy grapes and Pokémon Go and a new reason to fear mosquitoes. It took away Bowie and Prince and maybe a significant portion of my belief that “everything will work out just fine.” But whether or not things are totally peachy, you have to at least let yourself forget it momentarily today. Stop counting the cookies consumed and the hours spent in pajamas and just spread a little cheer to others and yourself. And maybe laugh as hard as my grandmother laughed in the above 1970’s Christmas scene. Things were weird then, too. But they always managed to let loose and show a whole lotta love. All without the aid of fruit that tastes like carnival food. How did they do it??
Hope this holiday treats you right <3
