Mark Kanemura was on So You Think You Can Dance a few years back. He regularly posts short, entertaining videos like this one from last year. As you can see, Mark has enough Christmas spirit for all of us.
So for those of you who are celebrating Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful holiday and for the rest of you, enjoy this ridiculous video. I’m sure it will bring a smile to your face.
I’ve been really good this year so I thought I’d let Santa know that if he can’t give me world peace or control of the U.S. Senate, I’d like to have this under my tree.
It is hard to believe this Speedo run started by friends back in 2000 would grow to be so popular in so many cities around the country but the idea is just the right mix of foolishness and fun. Sergio and I will miss this year’s run up Boylston Street and down Newbury Street but if you’re in town you may want to head over to the Prudential Mall and Hynes Auditorium where hundreds of runners will line-up for the quick (and very brisk) run.

Toys for Joys is this Saturday. Get your tickets ASAP.
Although Sergio and I are traveling and not able to attend this year’s event, I wanted to give a shout out for this year’s Toys for Joys celebration, that will take place this Saturday, December 14th at the Artists for Humanity Epicenter in Southie. Unlike most fundraisers, this event is devoid of rubber chicken dinners and long speeches, but organizers do ask that anyone who buys a ticket also purchase 3 gifts (minimum value $20-$25 per gift) to be donated:
tots (3-mos to 5 yrs)
tweens (6-11 yrs)
If your last name begins with A-M you purchase toys for a girl and if your last name begins with N-Z purchase gifts for boys. Gifts should be unwrapped and will be placed under the tree.

Spread some holiday cheer and help the Mass Bears & Cubs by participating in their annual holiday toy drive. You can drop off unwrapped children’s toys at Club Cafe and The Alley through December 13th.
Mass Bears and Cubs have partnered with the very worthy, Solutions at Work.

For those unfamiliar with this holiday tradition, Toys for Joys has become a significant force for good, collecting toy donations for children in our community most in need. The team behind this annual toy drive host the best fundraiser of the season – devoid of rubber chicken dinners and long speeches. The evening is filled with great music, delicious cocktails from Tito’s Vodka and a casual and welcoming atmosphere to meet and mingle with friends and new acquaintances.

Enjoy this year’s Christmas-themed Men in kilts post. Although there is no stamp on this, I bet these photos came from the Kilted Brothers ad campaign.
