The holidays are a time of giving and joy. A time of faulty twinkling lights, forced smiles at family gatherings, and mall Santa's, who smell like cheap cologne and even cheaper booze. Yes, it's that time again for our 6th ANNUAL TWISTED HO-HO-OH-NO HOLLY DAZE BASH !!! Let's have fun before we hit the overcrowded malls to shop for people we hardly know, are force fed crappy "holiday dinners" by relatives, whom we wish we didn't know, and attend work parties with co-workers, whom unfortunately we do know - all TOO well!
