All I Want for Christmas is to Leave My House

(and another stimulus check)

Christmas is going to be a bit ✨different✨ for most of us this year! With a pandemic affecting our daily lives and social distancing driving us to the brim of insanity (just me? okay..), we might not be able to spend our Christmas with our families the way we would like to. Usually, my Christmas consists of opening gifts, matching PJ’s, hot cocoa, and fake being surprised that grandma slipped a $50 into my Christmas card (thanks grandma, my tank’s been on E for like three days) 🥰

The only plus side to social distancing is at least we finally have a valid reason to avoid our in-laws and dreadful uncle Joe who chugs a few too many spiked hot cocoas and relentlessly recants his tales from the good ol’ glory days 😭 Another plus side to this pandemic is that my office Christmas party will be on Zoom and Jake from HR won't have a reason to carry his mistletoe everywhere (we all know a Jake...don't be a Jake).I mean seriously, I've been stuck in my apartment with my cat for the last 6 months and have exhausted all my sources of entertainment, plus I’ve seen just about every true-crime series known to man! It's time that we make this Christmas a little more exciting because this pandemic has put the ho!ho!ho! In HOPELESS!

My family was never big on Christmas cards tbh, but one thing they were good about...was making an impression. Now you can make and order your very own Christmas stationery that will impress all your friends (even the ones you hate)! Nothing says “me and my family don't actually hate each other” better than a well designed Christmas card! Hell, throw a mask in there, at least they won't throw that away (let’s be honest, if you keep your friend's Christmas cards that's...a little creepy). I know this year might not be the same, especially since I’m extremely single and there’s a life-threatening pandemic going on, but that doesn't mean we can’t get merry! If anything that's more of an excuse to get wine drunk and listen to Mariah Carrey's “All I Want for Christmas Is You” for the 1000th time in a row! 🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼

Merry Christmas ya filthy animal...seriously Momo, you stink.
