It’s the most wonderful time of the year— except for the fact that you’re at the top of Santa’s Naughty List. Coal definitely isn’t something you put on your wish list this year but we both know you’ll be getting a lot of it. Luckily it’s not too late to trick Santa into thinking you walk around with a halo on top of your head. Here are some ways to redeem yourself.
Stay clear of your exes. You’ll be home for the holidays and so will all of the sexy beasts you left heartbroken back in high school. Sure, you may be a little lonely stuck at home drinking eggnog and watching “Elf” every night with your cat (I know I will be), but that’s no excuse to be a Christmas break booty call.
Don’t be a Grinch. Christmas shopping for family and friends is always fun. Dad gets a nice Hawaiian shirt, Mom gets a cheese grater, your besties get posters of a shirtless Zac Efron, and you get new jeans, a purse, sunglasses…wait, what?! Don’t be a gift slut. I know it’s hard to shop solely for other people with all of the good deals out there, but try to limit the things you buy for yourself. Plus, if you get everything you want before Christmas, what’s everyone else going to get you? A freakin’ Shake Weight?
Don’t be “that girl” at the party. There’s bound to be plenty of holiday parties over break full of ugly sweaters, mistletoe, and lots of Christmas cheer. Since you’ll probably be bumping into old classmates you haven’t seen in awhile and douchey boys that may have turned you down back in the day, you’re obviously going to want to impress them. Show them what they missed out on. And you will! Drink a reasonable amount, flirt a little, have fun. Just please don’t be the girl that ends up totally sloshed, facedown in a plate of fruitcake.
Leave extra cookies and milk. With how naughty you’ve been, it’s probably a good idea to fill Santa’s belly a little bit more this year. Yes, I’m saying you need to suck up. Big time.
I can’t make any promises, but if you follow these guidelines, Santa will be sure to drop a couple “ho’s” off the end of your title this year.
