This isn’t Halloween. This isn’t some holiday where you go around disguising who you are in your day-to-day life because you’re around people who suddenly seem like strangers themselves, though you’ve known them for your entire life. This isn’t a period of time during which you visit different houses, hoping that they at least give you something good to eat when you get there because there has to be something to make this whole song and dance seem worth it at the end. This isn’t a day that seems to have gotten more and more built up since you were a child, even though each year it only leaves you feeling more and more let down than anything. And it is certainly not a holiday that you just try to enjoy every year without having to deal with the cynicism that pervades every day of your normal life, but find it hard to do so because so many of your peers are holiday-hating jerks. NO! This isn’t Halloween! This is CHRISTMAS! A time for dressing like an angel and being adorable and singing like no one can hear you and, in fact, like you can’t even hear yourself. The most wonderful time of the year, indeed.

You’re the best, girl! I only hope that my own future child will be an adorably attention-stealing total SCENE like this one. If not, I’m going to be incredibly disappointed in them. Not mad, just disappointed. (Via TastefullyOffensive.)

  1. Umm, don’t you mean this isn’t JESUSWEEN?

  2. Wait, Christmas is a time to be yourself? I thought it was the time where you squash yourself deep under layers of whiskey and crushed dreams and answered well-meaning (?) family questions about life, the future, and everything, while trying not to buckle under the weight of your own despair. At least, that is what I learned from Christmas movies. Yikes, I dropped the ball on this one.

  3. Where did you get this childhood Ke$ha performance?

  4. Good tidings of great volume.

  5. when I was 10 I wrote and drew a story which was basically A Christmas Carol starring a teddy bear. My older brother made fun of me because he said the story was predictable and unoriginal. I responded to this by adding a chapter in which Santa Claus and Jesus sued the teddy bear. The teddy bear won the lawsuit. Funny how I didn’t turn out weird or nothing.

  6. I just really want to know what’s going on there at the end. Like, what? Umbrellas! Gesturing!

  7. Oh, Britta’s in this?

  8. We have a guy like that in our choir. Everyone else realizes that there’s your “solo” voice and your “choral” voice. Not this guy. Now the director now just shhhhh’s him right in the middle of a performance.

  9. if this was the playground, the kid in the blue would have pummeled her off the swings.

  10. i’ve had a hard time getting in the christmas spirit this year, but good god damn did that not do it for me.

  11. Holy Shit! Thatsarealbabyinthatcradle!

  12. Let’s all acknowledge that on this day Baby Jesus didn’t break character once!
