Christmas is a punishment. On it's day, (and days surrounding it to a more or less degree) you can:
NOT go out to eat
NOT go buy anything
NOT go buy anything to eat
NOT go anywhere to do anything
NOT go to the store
NOT go to the pharmacy
NOT get a hold of anyone to share the misery.
DO sit at home. Bored.
Yes, I know, the movie theatres are open. Small condolences- there's nothing out I wanna see right now.
But that's ok. I planned for this. I've learned over the years of this very annoying day. I cleaned the house and shampood carpeting.
