When people speak about the Christmas holidays, one thought comes to mind: what is it like in your household? In my household, there is chaos, lost festive stockings, talks of what to have for dinner, how to detox from too much activity during the busiest time of the year, and laughter. This is the best time of the year to dream of riding the sleigh with Santa Claus, think about what to write in your letter to him, gossip about The Big Bang Theory with mates, befriend Rudolph and spend time with your favourite peer(s).
I don’t think it’s possible to best describe what it feels like when you want to eat more turkey roast than you can, only because it’s so scrumptious looking – looking like Whale infront of a Disney classic or Ben Hur, next to people you are close to, enjoying the film, or being Whale but gossiping with you about grabbing some tea later is what you do during the holidays.
I think the funniest moments are when your peers try to do what comes best to Italians and identify with the rhetoric of the Third Reich but do a lot of it, when they use their intelligent thoughts to expressively review books like Freakonomics that explain everything when their students are so cerebral but forget to comment on Darwinism and what they feel about the 4th of July and how much they truly enjoy European classics, Winnie the Pooh and shipwrecks.
I also feel that Christmas is a time when you think about subjects you didn’t get the chance to do so much of before: like tasty crispy seaweed and Batman. Happy Holidays!
