Another Chanmas approaches! Will you celebrate the 25th of December, the Chanmas way?
Here are some nifty traditions to help you get started!
Spike a drink*- (I.e. your hot chocolate, your coffee, your water..?)
Torture your loved ones with the STAR WARS: Holiday Special.
Ignore food traditions of the 25th and go get sushi (or YOUR favorite food)
Wear something grossly festive to you. Black is a fine color for this day. (Reds are acceptable, as it represents the blood of your fallen enemies.)
Think of being a bat as you run around the house with your spooky blanket poised as wings!
Make sure you watch “holiday” themed MST3Ks. They will make you question Santa forever…
Draw a little something for yourself. If this is not your talent, make sure you do that special something that makes you feel good (cuddling an animal, writing poetry, singing karaoke…)
PLAY MARIO KART WITH FRIENDS. (if no friends play online or substitute with Animal Crossing and get an internet party going! Your collective sadness will make you happy. XD)
Pumpkin spiced something or Cranberry something goodie to eat. (Green Tea something gives you like a bonus of 20 HP.)
Give tribute to this man-
Venture Brothers Holiday Special is MUST.
Enjoy teas through the day. If no tea, make it coffee. OR ELSE. (but seriously if neither is your thing, that’s cool.)
Go out drinking with friends the night before! Sake is a plus! Hangovers a not so welcome bonus.*
If applicable dance mother fucker, dance! -let the spirit of Dave Gahan move you.
Text/message a Chan on this special day. (We hear she likes that a lot.)
Wine it up. Red, mulled… you decide!* (though do this after sushi or waaaay before. These 2 things might not be compatible… unless you just are that COOL.)
Praise Saint Bowie, because.
COLORS: Black, Red, Grey, and White. If you do green, make it Absinthe green!
MUSIC: Depeche Mode, Venture Bros. Holiday Music, Old school 80s video game music.
Give hugs, lots and lots of hugs and appreciate those who are around you and that are a part of your life. Which at the core of it all is what Chanmas is all about- that and having fun with your special people, even if they are far away. ❤
Make up your own tradition. Do it! I dare you! (It’s fun! Today can be your day!)
Also, if back in 1981, it’s December 25th, and your name is Charlene Free, give birth to a Chandra Free, kay? (Time travel tradition.)
PLAY THIS. (I always cry when I play it, for dumb reasons)
Also, no pouting!
Enjoy your Chanmas! ;D
*NOTE: If you don’t drink, change up these traditions with your favorite drink or food vice. It’s okay! We do not judge on Chanmas day. Point is to have fun your way. 😀
