I hate the holidays. It just reminds me how utterly alone I am and how I’ll never find a meaningful relationship in my lifetime and how every girl I’ve ever dated cheated on me . I’m ugly. Bald . My beard is 4 different natural colors . I’m overweight. And to top it all off this the time of the year when my ex wife left me . So this part of the year can suck it. #depression #christmas #pagan #yule #dysmorphia #fuck #crying #holiday #holidays #seasonal #ugly #overweight #ex #wife

Dear Saban Insurance Co. Staff,
Pick up some Christish cards at my shop for whichever of their #holidays is up next.
It's the #holidays! Which one captures your festive spirit?
I'm a riot cat, definitely.
Someone under my "winter moments" post sparked a great idea for these little paintings ❄️ I will now also offer them as gift tags - and the best thing: if you order some art from me now until christmas (Dec 24 in germany), I will include one of them for free 🎁

A man dressed as the Grinch, who said he had a religious epiphany while seeing the M. Night Shyamalan movie "Signs," stood outside an elementary school holding a sign that read, "Santa is fake, Jesus is real."
• Chocolate Coin Challenge— Guess how many chocolate coins are in the jar! Each guess is $5, proceeds go to charity. Winner gets the jar full of #gelt!
Be an #ally to your one Christian friend and send them a card for after the chagim! My shop has a selection of minority holiday cards.
Which is more sustainable — a real Christmas tree or a fake one? A forestry professor breaks down all the variables for @TheConversationUS including how big a concern this is in the wider context (a round-trip flight from Los Angeles to Boston can produce more than 30 times the lifetime emissions of a typical artificial Christmas tree.)
Were you naughty or nice this year? Cause it’s Krampusnacht, the night Santa’s fearsome counterpart comes to collect the bad kids! #ArtAdventCalendar
My #linocut print shows Krampus, the scary horned creature of Alpine folklore, complete with birch rods, and naughty child in a basket. The origins of this character are debated but there are traditional parades called the Krampuslauf or Krampus 🧵1/

I painted this Christmas deer some years ago, but this year I decided to add some text for greeting cards.

Santa Claus is a pretty big guy. And yet not once, as far as we know, has the weight of the jolly old fella collapsed a roof, nor has he slipped off one. Perhaps even more impressively, Santa has a remarkable success rate for getting down chimneys. NPR explores the question: How does he do it? https://flip.it/UzDMHk

After so many trips around the sun, I can tell you this: All that stuff on your MUST-DO list for the holidays (or any time), do NOT have to be done. It's your EGO who tells you that; ignore it. No one will notice. No one will write you out of the will if you do. You'll be happier, trust me. Your epitaph won't say "She/he kept a clean house", but it might say, "Damn, she/he was a lot of fun." Which would you prefer?
Reminder: the Ventura County Fire Department (VCFD) is running a holiday toy drive, and collecting new, unwrapped toys at most fire stations. We dropped over several bags worth of toys today (the dog got a blast out of trying to take a self guided tour of the fire station, LOL) #VenturaCounty #toys #charity #ToyDrive #Christmas #Holidays https://vcfd.org/spark-of-love-toy-drive/

The local café, in cooperation with the National Film Archive of Iceland, showing a collection of old films from between 1940 - 1960 depicting day to day life in the city in the run up to Yule.
Candle, candy and yule tide food making. Snow packed streets. Book markets. A whole lot of cigarettes being smoked.
It's mesmerising to just sit and watch (as the snow comes down outside).
I decided to offer a birthday weekend discount on the spicy pages. I'll be dropping an audio story for subscribers over the weekend. 😈
P.S. The story has nothing to do with tech, however, I do know a few people who do vocal narration for tech podcasts & spicy books, so there's your tech connection.
As December has just started, I've created a PeerTube playlist of Christmas-related videos at:
Obviously might be more Xmas videos appearing on PeerTube this month, I'll add them to the playlist as they are published.
It's quite a diverse selection, you can skip back and forth through the videos with the ⏩ and ⏪ buttons.
• Annual Cholent Cook-Off— will your division finally manage to unseat Finance, winner of the Cholent Cup the last three years in a row??
The December Art Event is starting!
Starting from December 1, 2023 (registrations already open!), you will be able to participate in the event and register your gift request. The event will last for an entire month.
I decided that I want to spread gifts across fedi while also raising money for my survival.
How to enter?
You can order a gift request for a person of your choice (must have an active Fedi account to receive it and see the gift!). Here is the process step-by-step:
Send me a DM (if you prefer other means, please first DM me about your preferred method of communication) with the following information: Account of the receiver (username@domain), the content of the artwork you want to gift, a notice if you want to reveal yourself and any other things you deem important. Before step 2, I will message you confirming I have received your request.
Donate USD 10 or more to my ko-fi (https://ko-fi.com/sappocube); make sure to include YOUR fediverse handle in the supporter message so I know who did the donate come from. Amount donated does not affect the result.
(Residents of Poland can also message me if they prefer BLIK option)
I will reach out to you if I will need any more information.
The receiver will receive the gift you ordered. If you opted in to be revealed as the donor, you will also receive the copy of message.
Notice that there are a few people I chose at random to gift them artwork on my behalf.
You can sign up throughout the entire month of December, but sometimes delivery may extend into January 2024.
※ Limits apply: I will not draw explicit NSFW, depictions of abuse or drugs, real-life people without their consent (incl. public people).
Whether you're partaking in #BandcampFriday tomorrow or not, I've a couple of festive tracks floating around that are free to download (or name-your-price). In this case, a downbeat rendition of an old classic, complete with soap opera shouting in the middle. 🎄
Our local public library offers a free subscription to Kanopy for streaming content. Lots of holiday fare, and you can find some real…gems…sometimes! 😅
In June 2020 my dad died after a horrible fall down a flight of stairs. My mom was alone for #Thanksgiving & #Christmas due to the pandemic + other reasons. On Jan 6 2021 my mom tried to kill herself. (Yes, faux "news" viewing was also involved) So, for the last few years we've visited her for Thanksgiving & brought her home with us through the New Year +... #family #suicide #death #foxNews #holidays
