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.

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.
