How to Celebrate the Holidays…

…when you hate them.

Or, in other words, how Scottie celebrates Christmas.

Scottie Monk loathes the holidays. It’s the worst time of the year in his opinion. Here are a few suggestions he has for how to make it through December holiday parties and celebrations:

  1. Don’t.
  2. Seriously. Just fucking don’t.
  3. Have a drink.
  4. Repeat Step 3.
  5. Start over at 1.

As to why, here’s a list of what he hates about them:

  1. Everything.
  2. See above.

Do you love celebrating the holidays? Or, like Scottie, do you prefer to hide until all the fun is over?

Blackbird Advice: Surviving the Holidays

Two wolves playing near forest

So we’re finally into December, and I thought I’d grill the pack on how they make it through the holidays with their sanity intact.

Not entirely certain they have their sanity, but let’s pretend they do.

What’s best way to survive Christmas with your family?

Darren: Getting completely sloshed.

Josh: Hard liquor.

Elaine: A sudden and fatal case of the plague.

Gareth: Booze.

Steve: Aside from Elaine, none of you really have family to deal with at the holidays.

Darren: We have the pack.

Steve: You need booze to deal with the pack at Christmas?

Darren: I need beer to deal with you at all times.

Lorcan: You’re all miserable sods.

Josh: Oh? Says the rabbit who hops off at Christmas whenever possible.

Maybe we should move on, what’s the worst way to survive the holidays?

Entire Pack: Sober.

Do you decorate?

Elaine: No.

Steve: Ivy decorated on our behalf.

Josh: Lazy bastards.

Steve: Do you decorate?

Josh: Me? Decorate? Have you lost your bloody mind?

Lorcan: Like I said, miserable sods.

Darren: Do you decorate then, hoppy bastard?

Lorcan: Occasionally.

Gareth: He means no.
