A favorite pastime of my family's is especially prevalent at Christmas: to make fun of dumb movies. When many people are doing it, it turns into a sort of homemade Rifftrax, only better, because you feel satisfied after making a clever snide remark. Since there are many silly Christmas movies (think Hallmark), it's easy to do this now. This happened Thursday night, when we gathered around the television to poke fun at a sappy but beloved old favorite. Comment example:
"I've only known you for four days, but we went sleigh-riding together, and I love you."
This is quite a fun hobby, especially when others are around to spur on the critiquing spirit and appreciate your brilliant jokes.
