Probably looks better on fire too. Religion aside...it's just too tacky and if I'm gonna go Christmas tacky I'd rather decorate a palm tree and when I put a sheet doen underneath I'm gonna fill it with sand along with a heat lamp to warm my feet. Ahhhh...Christmas at the beach. We had Christmas in Puerto Rico a couple of years ago AND it was great.
i love going for a swim at the beach christmas morning, or Christmas Eve. its so hot here at christmas.. i fekking hate it.. i wish it snowed..
In PR Christmas Eve is bigger than Christmas Day with many people going out caroling. I was fortunate to be a part of a caroling group with my wife's sister and many nieces and nephews and a few cousins. I couldn't quite sing in Spanish..but luckily I was in charge of the coquito...a homemade eggnog like drink made with their island's 150-190 proof moonshine. We paid to have friends make up two five gallon buckets and then bottled it up in quart bottles. You take this around with you and a whole mess of plastic cups a bit bigger than Nyquil cups. I passed filled cups out all over the small town area of Aguadilla as we drunkenly meandered from block to block with hundreds of others. There were some of the tackiest Christmas decorations I'd ever seen AND I LOVED IT. It was a slap in the face and seemed to mock all the anally neat decorated homes back home just south of Seattle. My mother (Queen Mum) would have fainted and needed hospitalization if she had been there. We wienied out by 3am...but I was up at 7:30...hoped on my Kmart bike...hit the panederia for some PR coffee and flan...then down to the beach to help my friend open his ragtag beach bar and he gave me a quadruple shot of Don Q Anejo rum for Christmas that I sipped while sitting alone in waist deep water watching the gulls dive for breakfast. ahhhhh...the best Christmas since my son was little. Not much can beat the twinkle in little kids eyes Christmas morning. With the cold rainy Christmas's we have here...Christmas in PR was a real treat.
..but writing this post has my eyes tearing up...DAMN...wish I was there now.
