Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a great Festivus
This isn’t really the time for one of my serious sermons about the evils of tobacco addiction. Probably more helpful today is to count our blessings, and maybe trying to see the humorous side of things. If you are alive, with a roof over your head and some food to eat, then things could be a lot worse. With regards to humor I like to think of some of the funny seasonal scenes from TV and the movies.
One of my favorites is Seinfeld, and George Costanza’s dad’s invention of a new celebration….a Festivus for the rest of us. Check out the link, it’s hilarious:
Note that sometimes the Festivus tradition of “The airing of grievances” is a little too close to some other family holiday traditions.
My other Christmas favorite is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Here is a link to a clip, but its usually on TV repeatedly over the holiday season:
So if you are feeling a bit stressed out over the holidays and start thinking of smoking, put your feet up and have a laugh instead.
