The "It isn't Christmas unless..." thread#1

It isn't Christmas unless a roadrunner walks or runs accross my front yard.
For the 9 years we have lived here, one has.

Now, name something that makes it Christmas for you, where you live.

Usually it is before, my mom doesn't drink that much at all. Maybe a glass of wine, but that is it. She is from Puerto Rico, so she feels the need to sing it.

It isn't Christmas unless I've watched THE BISHOP'S WIFE at least once.
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

It isn't Christmas until my mom and I have done our ritual Christmas Eve oh-sh*t-we-need-a-tree scramble, found a Christmas tree for $5 at the one place that still has them, decorated it, wrapped presents in seperate rooms, and collapsed on the couch to watch Meet Me in St. Louis. Needless to say, we're a family of procrastinators.
I can't talk now. I gotta go get my wallet out of the toaster.

Unless my aunts and uncles all get drunk and start reciting A Christmas Story.

It isn't Christmas for me until the M&M's commercial where the red and yellow M&M are putting out cookies and milk for Santa and the yellow one says, "So do you think Santa will enjoy these red and green M&M's?" to which the red one replies, "I don't know I've never met the guy." It ends with them bumping into Santa and red says "He does exist" and then Santa, "They do exist."

I also feel that it isn't Christmas if TBS doesn't do 24 hours of A Christmas Story. It's not Christmas if I haven't watched "The Santa Experience(Rugrats)", "The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever(Invader Zim)", "X-Mas Marks The Spot(The Real Ghostbusters)", and "Billy and Mandy Save Christmas".

One final thing, it's not Christmas unless me and my family go to the movies. We've been doing that for I can't remember how long and this year's movie is Sweeney(my 2nd time seeing it).

Wow that was a lot.


It isn't Christmas unless I watch every version of A Christmas Carol with my family.

...unless I watch/listen to "Fairytale of New York" over and over again as I get ready for the day. Best Christmas song ever.
