It still boggles my mind that Christmas is only 10 days away, but calendar says it is so. And whom am I to argue with the calendar? To be fair, I’d argue on a bad day. Anyway, I leave for Minnesota in a few days and my brother told me with great glee that the high temperature will be negative something when I arrive. That’s right. The high is negative. And I’ve been whining about overcast skies and 60 degree temperatures in LA.
I am screwed.
To help me and you power through the next few days, I assembled some funnies for when you’re standing 10 deep at a checkout line, the nearest parking spot is 2 miles away from the Mall or you’re freezing your tuckus off in Minnesota. Christmas is truly the best time of the year but it can also be migraine-inducing, so I’m doing my part to help everyone stay sane and happy this holiday season with the best medicine — laughter and food.
This is true.
This may also be true. Rude, but true. 😀
I don’t understand cats and boxes but seriously — they don’t want toys. They want boxes.
For the Christmas song hating crowd, I used to be one of you. But … I got old. Now I rock Christmas music. Next, I’ll wear ugly Christmas sweaters intentionally.
Seriously, where do I apply?
That expression kills me. And Max retaliates by puking on my flip-flops when I force him to wear clothes.
This is why I don’t put up a Christmas tree. Plus, lazy.
Some days I feel this way too.
Some yummy treats to help you get on the Nice List.
Or some easy, low-cost DIY Gifts to impress friends and family.
This is also true.
Keep laughing, my friends, and maintain your holiday spirit.
kathy @ more coffee, less talky says
it’s -12C here and that doesn’t even include windchill so i feel ya! although i’ve been in canada all my life, i can’t stand the winters 🙁
Oh Canada. You and Minnesota are like kissing cousins. Cold and polite! LOL! I lived for 30 years in MN, so I definitely did my time. It does still feel strange in California at Christmas with the green glass and flowers. And flip flops!

Current temp here: -10F with a windchill of -24F. Yep, you’re screwed. 🙂 LOVE that first one – SO funny!!! I’ve managed to lose the three pounds I gained over Thanksgiving – hopefully I can keep it up. One of these days you have to come home when it’s warm out so we can get together. 🙂
I am. My parents tell me that it warms up to 20-30 midweek, which still makes this girl shiver! That is my favorite one too. Because #truth. Good for you losing your Thanksgiving weight. I’m terrible because give-up over the holidays, which is probably another reason why I struggle to lose weight! Yes! I would love to meet you! Hopefully some time soon!

I am spoiled these days, but I do remember the don’t outside cold days of MN very clearly.

Hahaha working one day a year and spending the rest of the year judging…uhhhh yes!!!
Honestly, wouldn’t that be the best job, ever? And everyone always treats Santa good since no one wants to end up on the naughty list. LOL!
These are adorable. I love the “Santa needs one more Ho” one. Hahaha! I like the dog ones, too, of course!
It’s currently 11 degrees here and EVERYTHING is ice. Ha. Good luck in Minnesota, lady 😉
The “ho” one made me giggle too. The expression on that dog is hilarious! Yeesh. Ice is the worst. I’m a terrible, no good driver in ice. Fingers crossed I survive that frozen tundra! LOL! You stay warm too!
Lol, these are funny! I like the cat in the tree (obviously) and Santa working one day a year and judging the rest of the time 🙂
Wow, that is some cold weather that you will soon be experiencing! Stay warm my friend!
I love cats in Christmas tree photos and memes. It would annoy the heck out me if it was Max’s butt hanging out the tree but since it’s not – HILARIOUS! And to be very clear, Max would murder a Christmas tree. Way too much stimulation for my mischief-making feline! I know. I’m so excited to see my family. So not excited about the cold!
