Been binging Hallmark Christmas movies. I would love to believe in Christmas miracles, but I tend to slant toward the more cynical side of life. Would really love to write a Christmas book, but afraid it would be sort of depressing. It’s not that I am depressed or lonely, I have many people I love in my life so I am never lonely, but I always seem to focus on the post-Christmas season, the time in life after all the wonder has faded.
Since I have three channels streaming Christmas movies almost 24-hours a day, in addition to three streaming services with even more obscure choices including those Krampas movies that are creepy well done, I will try to think about my motives and Christmas wishes while drinking hot cocoa and claiming it was eminent domain that decimated my gingerbread house community.
Side note: Binging on the Game of Thrones has been a good palate cleanser, but I needed that extra dose of sweet movies after … if you’ve seen it you will know what I am talking about. No, a character named Jon Snow has nothing to do with Christmas or the winter holidays, and ‘winter’s coming’ is not a holiday season tagline.
Kudos to Cost Plus World Market for saving me a trip to England to find out what the heck figgy pudding tastes like, or will taste like, on Christmas. They had European holiday treats like Christmas Pudding that may be a replacement for those who can’t get official figgy pudding or too cheap to pay the exorbitant online prices. I also got fruitcake from the UK. I love this stuff, but only once a year because it takes me that long to forget what it does to my stomach before I start to crave it again.
If your holiday joy is finding the presents before they’re put under the tree, check out Obooko.com because I have three free books posted on their website.
I wish everyone the happiest of holidays and the safest and most prosperous New Year!
