I don't actually love christmas a whole bunch, mostly because family gatherings stress me out. And it's all so materialistic. And I don't really do presents except for the littlies, and the other half, because he likes stuff a lot.
But there are some things I like. Like the food and the stuff. Christmas stuff can be very cool. I like to decorate the place to look christmassy, you know, with sparkles. I like christmas crackers. I recently picked up some cool stuff that I had to show off.
Number one, probably the best christmas toy you will ever see. The reasons why this is better than anything you own are:
- It has legs.
- It has no face.
- You press the button and it walks around to music.
- The music it walks around to is Yakety Sax (better known as the crazy running around music from BENNY HILL!!).
- It actually pauses in time with the music.
Watch this video. It will be the best 29 seconds of your day, guaranteed.
I can't even begin to describe the reasons why I love this item. It's a plushie. It has legs BUT NO FACE! BENNY HILL MUSIC!! To whomever came up with this astoundingly christmassy concept, I salute you sir, you have my lifelong respect.
|Oh hai, Merry Christmas!|
Freddo advent calendar. These things are extremely hard to find, and I am super happy that I managed to pick one up this year. It matters not that you can buy a packet of 20 assorted freddos for under $5, while Cadbury sell this little sucker for $14. I bought this baby for my office. So in December I will get a lovely little chocolate treat every afternoon (and two on Mondays and Fridays!), while I merrily count down to Christmas. Take me for a ride any day.

As an aside, how hilarious are Hallmark Keepsakes? Who out there has the Wicked Witch of the West, Darth Vader, the Two Mousekateers or Indiana Jones on their tree? Don't get me wrong, I love Spiderman, Darth Vader, Tom and Jerry and Harrison Ford as much as the next person... but on your christmas tree? Hmmm that being said, this is adorable!!
|na na na na na na christmas!!!|
I generally don't like to spend money on myself. I will ummmm and aaaahhhh about spending $20 on a top for myself, but I will impulse buy a $20 tree ornament without a moment's thought. What is wrong with me!
Just getting into the christmas spirit I suppose....
