A Christmas Message from the Loafer
Now that we’ve got Thanksgiving and the Northeastern US Best Irish Pub contest out of the way (not to mention that ridiculous No Shave November) , it’s time to focus on the upcoming holidays.
It seems to me that over the years, people have tried to “sanitize” the holiday season. We’re afraid of offending people or taking any kind of a stand as to our beliefs. So we’ve gone from Christmas trees and menorahs, to snowflakes and candy canes. Carolers routinely eliminate songs with any reference to religion. No more public nativity scenes or celebrations of light. Even Santa Claus is not immune from the criticism.
At LazyLoafer we have a policy of not taking sides on political topics—no matter what our personal beliefs may be. Instead, we’re all about the loafing. The travel, the celebrations, the activities, the fun and, sometimes, even the not-so-fun. So we’re not going to weigh in on this.
Instead, we want to hear from you. Write us. Give us your Christmas message…or holiday message…or whatever. Tell us about your memories—whether it’s your family traditions, your trips to Grandma’s house, your best Christmas present ever or the time you spent New Year’s Eve snowed in at the airport. The happy, the sappy and even the crappy.
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy—200 or 500 words and a picture or two if you have them will do just fine. We’ll post the most interesting ones on the site and the author of the most popular will get a free LazyLoafer t-shirt along with a box of Lorraine’s Homemade Choco-Gasmic Candies.
Send your submissions to our editor at Ken@LazyLoafer.com. It’s about time he did something to earn his keep other than filming videos with those other two goofballs.
We look forward to hearing from you and let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Heri za Kwanzaa, a nice winter solstice or just have a nice day.
Merry Christmas (that’s right. I said it.)
