Have yourself a tacky little Christmas

I’m not a big Christmas fan but I try and make the best of it.
Unfortunately, Xmas is a holiday you can’t escape; it’s everywhere
from the hair salon to your favourite bar. It hits you over head like a
bitter drag queer with a very large purse. One thing I do like about
the season is the tacky aspect that appeals to my inner sense of twist-
ed behaviour. If you’re looking for a slightly different perspective to
the holidays point your browser to these URLs:
