Ok. Out with 'em. What's the worst thing that has happened to you or a loved one during the holidays?

My dad's girlfriend died right in front of us on December 23, 2000. Merry fucking Christmas, right? Actually, two things happened. She choked on food and had a heart attack, but the doctors weren't sure which one happened first to trigger the other. We got to spend Christmas that year in the hospital, which I freely admit totally beat having to be around my grandmother. She's another story altogether.

I still got my Christmas presents, and someone I didn't care for very much left this mortal plane in such a manner that allowed me to have an enjoyable holiday. Win-win.

Well, nothing that bad has happened to ME, but I pride myself for being able to make my female cousin cry at every holiday.

note: she's fat, 20, and butt ugly, but thinks she's hot or something. I like to present her a glimpse at reality in such a way that even her parents get on my side.

Fucking egotistical CUNT.

... And as the family lay sprawled under their tree, in pools of their own blood, the sound of reindeer could be heard in the night sky.

Have the faith-ah. You'll be doing better soon, or you'll have a "Homeless" in front of your name and make it onto the O&A show before the rest of us.

As for the "happened to someone i know" department, I have a good one there too. Last Christmas Eve, a friend of a relative was visiting her mom in the hospital, who was dying of cancer. It was getting late, so she left the hospital to go home. Less than a half hour later, she was back in the hospital. Car accident. Dead at the scene. There's a caring God alright.

It's pretty creepy to see someone just drop in front of you like that. It almost would have been easier to deal with if she had been shot or stabbed instead, because you'd see a direct cause. But then again, that would have been bloody, and one of the first things the doctor told us when she was admitted was that she tested positive for the Hep C. My dad had to go get tested immediately. Fortunately, he didn't catch it, but instead got a wicked case of genital warts. My stepmom told me about that. TMI. TMI.

year 2000....

It started in March with my Grandfather (who practically raised me) dying, then 12weeks later, my Uncle(my fathers best friend) died in a horrific car accident. My dad couldnt go to his house until Christmas. Which was hard. I remeber having a big hug of relief Christmas eve with my parents. It was the feeling that we made it through the year and nothing else can happen. 7 days later, new years eve, our house burns down killing three very loved family pets. Happy fucking Holidays. :D

When I was about 5 or 6 I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I heard Santa and come to find out it was my parents going at it like jackrabbits. I don't really remember how I felt but now thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach.

One Christmas eve, about 6-7 years ago, I was doing sound for the Christmas eve service at my church. The choir starts processing in, and in far left isle, some old guy stands up, clutches his chest, and keels over. DOA.

My dad has a band, and this past New Years Day he sends an email that some guy keeled over on the dance floor & died of a heart attack. Turns out it's the THIRD time it's happened.

When I was a kid, one Christmas all I wanted was an Evil Knievel action figure and a white Christmas. It didn't snow, and I got a Steve Austin action figure.

You people don't even know the meaning of the word horror.

Seriously... when are you expecting some income? What kind of teaching/librarian job defers paying a salary for months? I hope you have some friends and/or family to help you out.

Good luck, bro. :action-sm

Back when I was an alter boy..every year without fail..someone died or stroked or heart attacked at the Christmas Eve Midnight mass.
Then there was the year our priest did the midnight mass at this reformatory school for girls and my parents and I were driving behind him and a Buck dove through his windshield impaling him and pinning him to his car seat
