Happy Easter one and all!

I just wanted to wish anyone who might be reading this a HAPPY EASTER! I’m not really a big holiday person, so I’m not going to say much! That’s pretty much it in fact! I got things to do! Anyone doing any driving today to spend time with family should definitely drive carefully though! I want everyone to be safe! and watch out for bunnies!

Christmas is nearly here! In just a few days in fact. It’s the time of year, when reindeer fly through the sky, and an old fat guy breaks into your house, eats your cookies, and leaves behind a gift to say “Rubadubdub, thanks for the grub!”. Not only that,but it’s also the one time a year, when it’s ok to cut down a tree, drag it into our house and throw baubles and ribbons on it, so that it can look pretty as it slowly dies. Then toss it to the curbside for the garbage man!

Apparently it also has something to do with Jesus being born or something. However the main reason christmas is so damn popular is because it’s a day that you get presents! Yea, you also have to give presents, but if you are lucky, then you get more presents than what you give, and you can make out like a bandit!

As for me personally, I am not a huge fan of christmas. Bad things tend to happen around the holidays, and to be honest, I am usually on edge and quite grumpy this time of year. Don’t get me wrong, if someone gives me a present, I will gladly accept it, and I will even give gifts. However, I don’t deck my halls with boughs of holly, or go out in the middle of the night with a group of friends singing carols.

That being said, I do go out and get candy! Why? Christmas is the third best holiday for holiday exclusive candies! Easter being 1st, and Halloween being second. I will admit that a lot of Christmas candy is shaped like Santa Clause, but not all of them are! The rest is all cane shaped!

When I was a kid, Candy Canes came in one flavor. Peppermint! Sure, as I grew into a young adult, they came out with Cherry Candy Canes, but when I was around 5, Different Flavored Candy Canes would have sounded so sci-fi! Now, not only is there still Peppermint and Cherry, but a boat load of other flavors! Almost every flavor you could think of can be found in cane shaped sugary goodness.

So, since Christmas is so close, I decided it was high-time to head down to the local grocery store and pick me up some candy canes. When I got there, I noticed they had 2 new candy cane flavors I had not ever seen before! Sure, maybe they were there last year, and I didn’t notice it because I was so thrilled to find out cadbury mini-eggs also came in a christmas flavor(Which sadly I could not find this year).

So, being the festive SOB that I am, I picked ’em up!

First it's sour, then it's sweet! Christmas magic at work.

This ones just sour...no sweet, deal with it!

So, yea. Long story short: It’s almost christmas, and they got some new candy canes. They taste good.

Halloween is almost upon us! It’s nearly time for all the little ghosts, ghouls and Goblins to come out to wreak havoc across the land! Are you prepared?!

Here’s a fun fact for you, Halloween is actually one of the only Holidays that I enjoy. Despite the fact, that I usually spend it alone, It is still my favorite Holiday. The reason for this? Well, there are a variety of reasons for this! First of all, It’s not really a family oriented Holiday like Easter, Christmas or Thanksgiving. Since, it doesn’t focus on family, I don’t find myself thinking about all people closest to me that I have lost. That’s always a good thing!

Another reason that I enjoy Halloween is the fact that it becomes much easier on October 31st, to find a good Zombie movie on Television! This year, with the start of The Walking Dead TV Series will be even better, because Honestly, the only thing better than a movie about Zombies, is a series about Zombies! Plus Halloween holiday episodes of Television shows are usually pretty snazzy too!

If those weren’t good enough reasons to love Halloween, I have just two words to say to you. Candy Corn. Yep, Candy corn, one of the best holiday candies ever created. Sure, it’s practically just pure sugar. Sure, it will rot your teeth out. Sure, it will probably put many people into a sugar coma. All that maybe true, but damn, is it worth it!

I remember, when I was a little tyke, I used to, like most children, attach the little bits of candy corn to my teeth, and pretend they were Fangs. I would then run around making silly little vampire statements like “I vant to suck yer blood!” in a cheesy Romanian accent. However, I believe the Phrase I prefered at the time was a quote from the movie Fright Night, “Your dinners in the oven!”, yea it was a stupid quote for a lame movie, but at the time I friggin loved it!

Anyway, I would probably run around for 15 mins or so, with my candy corn fangs. Honestly? I am surprised that my teeth being exposed that long to Candy Corn didn’t cause them to fall out! Hell, I suppose I am severely lucky that I still have teeth to call my own.

Happy Easter my Interwebs friends! Today of course is the day where the giant man-sized rabbit puts on his bow, goes out to his chicken coop to collect his magical Technicolor eggs, and then runs around the world hiding them in the yards of perfect strangers! Don’t over think it! It’s not supposed to make sense!

Anyway, here’s a little comic strip to help celebrate everyones favorite pastel holiday. No, not National 80’s Day! Easter!
