Meme-ery from Jim – who renamed it from “Stuff I Hate About the Holidays” and, for reasons undisclosed, removed number four, which I’ve reinstated.

1) dessert/cookie/family food: Hmm. A food I hate. A holiday food I hate… I’ll have to get back to you, on this one.

2) beverage (seasonal beer, eggnog w/ way too much egg and not enough nog, etc…). I’ll second the crime of fruity beers. Ugh.

3) tradition (church, family, other). Shopping.

4) Decoration: Anything inflatable.

5) gift (received or given). Socks. Plain white gym socks. (Without making it out to be more than it was, my mom wanted to be sure we had lots of stuff to open, so sometimes we’d get things under the tree that we’d normally get in the laundry basket. She’s sweet that way.)

BONUS: SONG/CD that makes you want to tell the elves where to stick it.. EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM! by halfway through the month. It’s the month for books on CD in the car. Though, I gotta say I love feliz navidad. Not for the song so much as for hearing someone say, “prospero año,” which I wish we’d say instead of “happy new year.” It sounds so much better.



  1. […] and two of his friends have done this meme. I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to do something like this. […]

  3. I think I accidentally bought some of that as part of a Sam Adams variety pack.
    Stop on over. You can have it. Ohio’s on your way to the west coast, right?

  4. Um, you really need to figure out how to put the tilde in “año” because, well, “ano” means something else. ;-)

  5. I won’t guess at what it means without the accent, but I’ll thank you for leaving one I could copy and paste!
