Intermission: A Video From Santa
We know, we know: Christmas is too commercialized, holiday songs are annoying (especially when sung by Justin Bieber), there's not even any snow.
We know, we know: Christmas is too commercialized, holiday songs are really annoying (especially when sung by Justin Bieber), there's not even any snow. But December 25 is just three days away, and wouldn't it be a shame not to muster up a little bit of holiday spirit?
If you need some help, try this cute project from Google, which allows you to send personalized videos from Santa. You could send them to your kids, but many of the best options are themed for grownups. Santa can refer to the recipient as your "brother from another mother" or a "PR nightmare" and promise to bring him a hot date or a pair of jeggings. You can even pick a design theme, from Rococo to princess-like to "hipster" (a Christmas tree with thick-framed glasses, Chuck Taylors, and a U-lock for his bike). He'll even say your friend's name. If you're anything like us, that combination of irony and earnestness is exactly the thing to get you through the weekend of family dinners and midnight Masses.
