I started writing this post about Holiday Deals. A lot of people go away for the Holidays, especially people like me who are born in the Northeastern part of the U.S., where nostalgic, Norman Rockwell-esque, images of a white Christmases never seem to overcome the fact that December is damn cold, and not fun.
Yes, you could look at your window and see the wind sweep snow across a glittery white frozen yard, shining in the moonlight (even though its only six o’clock) and snuggle up with your loved ones and drink eggnog. Or you could open your presents, and then go play on the beach. Thanks to low-cost airfare, and an ever growing list of websites that offer discounted holiday travel packages, it’s easier than ever to find a holiday deal and celebrate the holidays in comfort.
I was going to write about all of that. But then I realized that Holiday Deals
hold an entirely different meaning in Britain. Its simply a vacation, which of course destroys the point of a special “Holiday Deal.”
So since these Holiday Deals are available all year round, maybe you should stay at home with friends and family this holiday season. Maybe you throw some rum in that Egg Nog and it actually isn’t so bad. Because you can find
Holiday Vacation deals anytime, if you know where to look. I mean, you might get pissed if you stay at home this for holiday. Or you might have a bloody fun game of football with your mates, in which case you might have to go see a doctor, and explain to him why you are a polygamist.
Going back to London soon, I have to get these terrible puns out now…..
