While any of you that read this site certainly don’t have the salary to be an active participant of Crabonanza 2009 [I hear the catch this year sucks anyway!], there are more definitely some activities to get you into the holiday spirit after stuffing your face all day. And FYI: football is no excuse to unbutton your pants and sit like a fat ass on the couch. You’ll be hating yourself next month when you can’t fit into that hot little number on NYE. Trust me on this — don’t be a slob!
I know a lot of you will fit into this first category, which means you’ll be battling it out at the biggest department stores to get your dad that Ed Hardy shirt he wants because “all the kids are wearing them these days.” Fear not, as the one of the only two malls in San Francisco is actually having a Dunkin Donuts outpost that will be having free coffee from 6am-2pm! It isn’t much to get you out of bed and over to Stonestown [aka Middle of Nowhere, Not actually SF, etc.], but it is a little extra incentive to keep pushing on for those saved pennies.
If you’re hungover and planning on not getting out of bed until 4 but want to do something that might get you in the spirit:
If you ended up with that childhood friend of yours after too many Irish coffee’s and spiked eggnog, fear not: the onset of Christmas should cheer you up! It really doesn’t start to feel like the season has started until Macy’s throws up their million wreaths in every single window. The Christmas tree lighting is bound to put that really cheesy smile on your face that will definitely make you feel like its that time of the year. Just don’t trip over the wires.
And since all this shit is FREE, you’ll still be taking part in Buy Nothing Day! Fuck Consumerism!

Look for the idiot mascot in the Donut costume. ‘Nuff Said.
Macy’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony
FREE, but you can pledge $10 for UCSF’s Children’s Hospital and support a light. I know you motherfuckers don’t have a lot to give, but karma always pays you back in one way or another.
