This place would be busier than O'hare

It is officially the holiday season. I don't care if Christmas things were out on display before Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are truly the holiday season. Since 'tis the season I've decided to make a list of things that are cool and ok for everone this year and things that are not cool. And this is not going to leave anyone out. It applies to everyone everywhere.

Christmas music is good this year. It's always good. It's amazing to listen to Handel's "Messiah" and old fashion carols. It's even cool to sing "Rudolph" and "Frosty." It's not cool to listen to any Christmas album released by the following people or groups:
-Kenny G
-Ricky Martin
-Veggie Tales

** Please note that "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" is always acceptable and it's always cool to sing along to each song while watching "Home Alone"

Food items that are cool include home-made turkey, ham, duck, chicken and veggies. Honey Baked Hams is also really cool...just expensive.
What's not cool is the take-home holiday platters from Boston Market or Kenny Roger's Roaster

Dirty Santa is always cool and a fun game that involves everyone. Dirty Santa pornography emails in my hotmail account are not cool.

Eggnog is cool. With or without alcohol it's cool. Fruitcake and Jello molds are not cool. They never were and never will be.

Online shopping is coo. You can get presents delivered right to your door. You rarely pay sales tax and you do it from the comfort of you desk chair. Mall shopping is not cool at all. Especially the "Midnight Madness" on the night of Thanksgiving. Very uncool. Unless you're looking for a mighty deal at Topkapi and Spencer's gifts. Besides...No one wants anything that you would buy them at a mall anyway. Just give them cash instead and tell them you're sorry but you didnt want to buy them some un-appreciated mall gift.

Holiday cards are cool. A nice card-stock greeting from Hallmark is always nice. Picture cards are cool too. Not cool items include picture cards with your poodle (or any dog for that matter) with a red nose and antlers. Thanks, but I didn't want to look at your depressed dog for my holiday. Now get that crap off it before it gets pissed and attacks. Also not cool are online e-christmas cards. Lame, cheap and lazy is all I have to say about that. Now I don't send any Christmas cards (judge me if you will), but I would rather not send or receive one than have an e-card taking up 20 mb in my 'New Mail' folder.

Also very cool items are cider, Starbucks Peppermint Mocha and Christmas tree candles from Yankee Candle (don't judge....they smell amazing)
