City Pulse

By Gillian Weeks

For a holiday with a catch phrase like “ho ho ho,” Christmas can be awfully serious. In some ways, it’s understandable: it’s hard to crack a smile when you’re dropping a month’s rent in one shopping trip. The only cure for the holiday blues is a return to simpler times. All it takes is construction paper and a little imagination (and having the mind of an 8-year old helps, but I guess not all of us are so blessed). It goes to shows that even the most mature of us can find happiness in a hand puppet.

Watch the video below to learn how to spice up your life with some holiday crafts. And FYI, I’m not actually on drugs. That’s just my personality.

Just kidding…
