My all time favorite Christmas story would be A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. We were introduced to three spirits who represented the past, present, and future. The spirit that really intrigued me was the Ghost of Christmas Future. For the longest time, I have wondered why he looked like the Grim Reaper and why he did not speak. After much analysis, I believe I have an idea of why the Ghost of Christmas Future was portrayed this way. He looks like the Grim Reaper because death is the one future everyone inevitably faces. He does not speak because he is the embodiment of the future and the future is unknown and in motion. If he speaks, then the future will no longer be unknown and would be set in stone. As Ebenezer Scrooge proved, his fate was not set in stone because the Ghost of Christmas Future did not speak a single word to him. If the spirit did speak, then Scrooge would not escape the dark fate he was shown.


With Christmas around the corner, I would like to talk about some of my childhood favorite Christmas movies, Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. Obviously the most iconic aspect of these films was how Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern walk through a gauntlet of booby traps as though they were in a Three Stooges episode. In the videos above, some medical experts analyze the injuries they sustained from the booby traps and what would happen to them in real life. I liked how brutally honest and blunt the experts were.



I had a Christmas dinner to remember this year! My family and I went to an all-you-can-eat buffet that served the best high-class food we had in a long time. I went to the buffet four times and a lot of the food I had I never had before. It was a serious culinary adventure! Among these new foods was the dark meat of a goose. It was so juicy and succulent that it relaxed me to the point in which I was mentally like play dough. The dark goose meat was so good that I effectively stripped the kitchen of all its dark goose meat. The light meat of the goose just tasted like pork tenderloin so it was nowhere near as special as the dark meat. I had caviar that smelled like the ocean but did not have the crunchy/nutty texture that the caviar I had weeks earlier. I had oysters and mussels, which were slimy, salty, and roughly tickled the back of my throat. The desserts were divine and included a raspberry torte that had the same relaxing effect the goose meat had. Overall, it was a great Christmas dinner that I did not want to end because it was too f***ing good!
