So, I’m making up a list of thing to avoid and seek out during this holiday season. You don’t want to turn into a psychologically perplexed Grinch. Do you? Hope you like it!

Seek out

Opportunities where you can be thoughtful to strangers – Let the a little old lady or a burdened mother of 3 go in front of you in whatever line you’re in. It will make you and the stranger feel terrific.

Hot cocoa – I prefer using Mexican chocolate, but use whatever floats your boat.

All the great holiday movies: A Christmas Carol, It’s A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th St.

Wish your non-Christian friends, acquaintances and colleagues happy holidays. They won’t be offended.

Old friends that you have heard from in years. Reminisce about past foolishness, victories and struggles.

Avoid (at all cost) –

Fighting with family, shoppers, the neighbors (loud music) and humanity, in general.

Last minute shopping. You’re just asking for a heart attack, stroke, muscle cramp or roaring headache if you go to the mall 1 to 2 days before Christmas.

Getting drunk at any social function. Especially the company Christmas party. Xeroxing your thong clad ass while screwing the guy in accounting is no way to celebrate the birth of Christ!

Re-gifting to the same person who gave you the gift. It can and does happen all the time.

Fruitcake. It is satanically sweet, dense and wrong! But it can be used to fortify levees.

Hand cramps. Don’t send cards to half the planet. Just send it to the people you love.

Being a tree designer.  Decorate your Christmas tree like normal people do. Don’t decorate it as if its going to be displayed at Rockefeller Center!

Don’t be offended if you receive modest gifts. Be thankful and gracious for the ones that gave the gifts to you.

Last but not least, don’t spend too much money on gadgets, ugly ties, video games and any Williams-Sonoma product!
