I’m Dreaming of a Weird Christmas

Weird Christmas

Before I became a (ahem) Respected Pillar of Portland Society, and long before the local merchant community latched onto the bohemian vibe of this berg with their “Keep Portland Weird” campaign, I spent a decade as a bachelor living la vida loca here.

Thousands of miles from family, and with an anti-commercial, atheist bent, each big holiday presented its own special opportunity. Sure, there’s the Christmas movie matinee, Chinese food, and Christmas night at the bars. But I had some truly wild days I’m not at liberty to discuss (now that I’m setting an example for the children).

So, Portland weirdos, what’s on the calendar this year? Where do you go, what do you take, what do you do, and who do you do it with? Let it all hang out; I’m living vicariously here.

(In all seriousness, there’s no place I’d rather be than my living room with my wife and kids and extended family this Christmas, even if I am still an atheist socialist at heart.)
