December Has Arrived!

1 Dec

Finally! December is here! It feels like it has been the longest and the shortest year all at once. Part of me is all “How in the world is it already December 1st?” while the other part is screaming “How the hell is this year not over yet? Who is responsible for this?”

So ya know, a tad conflicted about how time is passing, but otherwise totally normal over here. Yup, super normal. πŸ˜‰

We did some Christmas stuff at work today, can’t tell what, it’s a secret! What I can share is the adorably dorky head piece I got to wear, and continued wearing long after all others had taken off their Christmas accessories.

Not the best lighting but whatcha gonna do? Well, I suppose use a filter but meh, can’t be bothered. I know, I know, such a lazy blogger am I!

I am that person who loves wearing silly things on their head for holidays. Canada Day? You can bet I have the Canadian flag on a headband. St. Patrick’s Day? Four leaf clovers of course! Easter? I make the cutest bunny. I could keep going but I’m sure you get the picture. So when I was offered the Christmas bow for the rest of the month I definitely said yes! I wore it for a chunk of the day, but did eventually have to take it off because weirdly enough these things tend to be sized for a child’s head and my head is not the size of a child’s head. sigh. The hardships we must endure to wear silly things on our head.

My Christmas activity for today was watching The Christmas Chronicles Part 2 when I got home. Have you seen it yet? Part 1 came out in 2018 and it only took them 2 years to bring out a sequel, which meant they could use the same actors and not have it look strange.

It was a classic Christmas story of a villain who isn’t really all that bad trying to ruin Christmas because their feelings are hurt and Santa, with the help of some kids, beating the villain while teaching a life lesson to the children, and the villain. We did almost lose Dasher to a fight with a Yule cat, but I refuse to discuss that, too traumatic. πŸ˜‰

We did get this fun little musical number randomly in the middle…

I thought to start my month with a new Christmas movie, of course I’ll watch a bunch of the classics, but it’s good to bring some change in to the season, right? Sure, change by way of a new Christmas movie, that has some of the same characters as the first part from two years ago, isn’t exactly creating waves of shock in my world, but there are a lot of big changes happening around me, so I decided to make a little change. One guaranteed to work out…or as close to a guarantee as you can get with a sequel! And hey, whatta know, it worked out!

Christmas Movie Countdown

11 Oct

Since I’m already counting down to Christmas (only 75 days away!) I thought I should buckle down and start watching some Christmas movies. Nothing like getting in the spirit early, am I right?

Tonight I watched “Daddy’s Home 2” which doesn’t sound like a Christmas movie, but is. Well, it is a movie set at Christmas time, it isn’t just about Christmas.

It’s from 2017, stars Mark Wahlberg (yum), Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson, and John Lithgow. The basic gist is Mark and Will’s characters are co-parenting Mark’s kids since Mark’s ex is now married to Will. They are total opposites, which is where a lot of the comedy comes in from the first movie. Now they have a bit of a system working for them, a faux balance to things, then each of their dads shows up for Christmas and basically screws with that just by being there and being themselves.

There is a lot of macho one upping, random reveals about how people really feel, kids trying and succeeding with getting in to the eggnog and getting drunk, all those classic Christmas tropes.

It is funny, funny enough that I legit laughed out loud a couple times, well, more like snorted in a lady-like kind of way, cause ya know, I’m totally a lady. πŸ˜‰

Now that I’m watching Christmas movies I should probably start with other Christmas activities, right? I don’t decorate, and people may get a touch upset if I start bringing them Christmas baking before Halloween, so what else is there? There’s no snow so I can’t start a snow ball fight…hmm…I’m thinking I’m just going to have to continue on with my informative (though some would say annoying) Christmas countdown, and keep watching those fun Christmas movies!

So, just so you know, it is:

75 days until Christmas

11 weeks and 1 days until Christmas

1779 hours until Christmas

Don’t you feel more informed now? And not at all annoyed right? Right!
