It's Christmas! (For the record, I'm Jewish, but whatever, I've always not-so-secretly loved the fuck out of Christmas, which's really a secular holiday at this point, amirite?) Regardless of your religious affiliations, chances are good you've got a few hours off this week to spend with your parents and/or children as well as various assorted members of your chosen and/or incidental family. There will be food and drink and presents and, obviously, lots of feelings and minimal safe spaces. Thus we present our fourth annual holigay open thread!
Also! If you're looking for a holiday drink, we suggest Irish Coffee, Eggnog, mulled wine, spiced whiskey, Hot Canadian, Five Loko, Corpse Reviver #2, Vegan White Russian, Skinny's Spiced Pear & Ginger Punch, Poinsettia, Spiced Pear Sangria de Cava, Peppermint Snowflake Mistake, Candy Cane Infused Vodka, The Holiday Standard, Coquito, Bloody Ohio, or a Flaming Cinnamon Martini. Want some solids with your liquids? Try our moms' favorite holiday dishes or just Get Baked in general. Or perhaps you'd like to wrap presents, make a last-minute gift, roast chestnuts over an open fire, snuggle up in holiday hotness, make yourself some holiday-themed apparel, create some belated menorahs or do some super last-minute holiday shopping. We've also got advice on bringing your girlfriend home, not coming out, children, coming out help for your parents, breaking up before the holidays as well as music including the Happy Holigays Playlist, XXmas, First Snow and Christmas songs that don't suck.
If you'd like to view my girlboifriend's favorite Christmas film, A Claymation Christmas, you can do that right here:
Now it's your turn: what are you doing today? Are you having fun? Any politically horrifying and/or inspiring conversations? Have you been stuck in an airport for any significant period of time? Are you judging me for having a Christmas tree this year even though I'm Jewish? Did anybody get you a Samantha doll or 23 pounds of paper? Is this your favorite Chirstmas song, because it's mine? :
TAKE IT AWAY, WEIRDOS!!
