It’s that wonderful time of the year, when snow glistens in the evening light; when we sit by the fire and drink egg nog; when we adorn the tree with bulbs of all different colors; when we wake up Christmas morning and dash out to open gifts.
Or, if you’re me, it’s that time of the year when you don’t do shit.
Wait, actually scratch that. It was that time of the year when I didn’t do shit. Until, five or six years ago, I was visited by the Ghost of Christmas Future, who said to me, “Gather your children and create a holiday card featuring invented people. Send it to 50 random folks from your life. Say nothing, and bring forth confusion.”
Ho. Ho. Ho.
And if you’re a recipient of the 2018 Alvarez Family card, Mike, Julie, Felipe and Stubs wish you a merry Christmas.
