Well I wanted to take this time to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas. So there you go, Merry Christmas.
This is the 2nd year in a row that my kids have been up at their grandparents for Christmas, so my house is once again quiet this year. It is just me and my brother that are here in the house this year. So instead of making my normal huge baked ham and dressing dinner, I will be making me and my brother a huge ass pot of Jambalaya from scratch. What better a dish could you make on this lonely holiday? I think Cajun food for Christmas is a decent type of food for Christmas in the south. Hell if there was a place that was open and selling fresh crawfish, I would have a crawfish boil for Christmas.
I ask you to remember that Christmas is not about giving and getting over priced materialistic bullshit gifts, but rather it is about spending time with family and friends. Family is the one thing that has me down in the dumps this year as my kids are 800 miles away with their grandparents. I know that they don’t get to see them very often, but it is still depressing around here without my kids here. It is so quiet here that you can hear all of the neighbors fighting about money and who burned the dinner and why. I am lonely and even though I occasionally need a break from my kids, I don’t think Christmas is the best time for it. So I urge you all to remember to spend time with your family and enjoy their company, regardless of how messed up your family is.
I also ask that you watch my favorite Christmas movie this year. And that movie is Christmas Vacation. If you have never seen it, what the hell is wrong with you? If you have seen it, go watch it again dammit. It is one of the best movies ever made. The scene where Clark flips out is classic. “We are going to have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny Fucking K.”
Merry Christmas to you and your families.
