Pin It Ignore the date shown at the end of the video...
So, the above video should have given you most of the nitty-gritty; however, I realize that there may be a few items I failed to mention, one you should have ignored, and I realize that some of you out there just might have an aversion to YouTube video explanations. In honor of those unnamed individuals I'll post a few quick notes here:
How do you get invited? Oh…it’s easier than you think. If you're reading this blog, you already are; if you live nearby, I’d love for you to come celebrate it with me - unless you're creepy, in that case, feel free to get lost on your way over.
When would it be? September 24th from 6:00 p.m. until around late-thirty; come and leave as you want. Ignore the date on the end of the video...Whoa, just wait a second here, Teachinfourth...why aren’t you celebrating it this weekend? After all, shouldn’t it be the closest weekend to the day of your birthing; isn’t it usually held on that same weekend?
Truth be told, yes.
However, this year there is to be a change...you see, my brother and sister-in-law are both coming into town, younger sisters, my dad and his wife, and maybe even another family member and/or friend or two...if I held Christmas in September back just a few weekends, I make it quite possible for all of them to attend.
Also, I have sets of AMAZING friends who can’t make it for one or other of the next two weekends so I opted to make it for the third so it is better for everyone.
Yeah, I’m pretty much a hero; just give me a cape and an another unlimited supply of super powers.
So, here’s how it’s going to work...
1. Send me an email and let me know if you need directions OR would like to RSVP by means otherwise than commenting (firstname.lastname@example.org). Be sure to put “Christmas in September” in the subject line.
2. Bring a present you wouldn’t mind getting for your birthday since we will be having a gift exchange where, if you bring a gift, you get to pick one from under the Christmas tree when you decide to go. Shouldn’t everyone get presents on the new holiday to commemorate my and Jesus’ birthdays?
Yeah, that’s what I thought, too.
3. Bring your favorite Christmas treat to share with everybody else. After all, what’s a celebration without artery-clogging, calorie-ridden deliciousness?
My thoughts exactly.
4. Be prepared for a fun evening where you may come and go, partaking of hot chocolate, rock out to Christmas tunes, and bask in the warm glow of projected holiday films in the ‘underground cinema.’
So, I’ll be seeing you in three weekends with - or without - the bells on.
