Today is the absolutely, positively LAST day you can place a Thanksgiving order for the NYC area (our online store will start shipping out again next week). So, you know, do that right now so I can put the Holiday ordering up and start bothering you guys about that. Seriously, Hanukkah is like 2 weeks away or something. Calendar’s all the way across the room and I don’t feel like getting up to check, but you can take my word for it.
I’m already all-in on the holidays- listening to Christmas carols, placing sugar cookie scented air fresheners all over our apartment, replacing all liquids in my diet with eggnog etc. I don’t want to hear anyone complaining about “Oh, the holidays start earlier and earlier every year! Blah blah blah Scrooge blah blah!”- there’s 47 weeks a year of the same old same old, and only FIVE where it’s all magic and sparkles and mistletoe and Hallmark Channel Christmas movies starring Candace Cameron Bure.
I LIVE FOR THIS CRAP AND I WILL NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO RUIN IT FOR ME.
As sad as it is that our fall flavors are going back into the vault for another year, we’ve now got only a few short weeks to enjoy the magic of Robicelli’s Christmas: holiday flavors like Creme Brulee & Cranberry Gingerbread, manic Tumblr posts that alternate between being swept up in the magic of Christmas and being six seconds away from selling my children to the circus, and live-tweeting lousy made-for-tv Christmas movies as if people who are reading actually have the faintest idea what I’m talking about (heads up: I will also be live-tweeting this Sunday’s world premiere of the Lindsay Lohan tour de force “Liz & Dick” if you want to follow along with me! @robicellis).
Right at this moment, let’s be happy that fall flavors are still here and eager to be eaten for a few more days til next September! They’re in lots of our locations today, so go grab one (or a few) and pre-game for Thanksgiving- or shove some in the freezer in in the event after dinner with your family on Thursday you’ll need to eat your feelings. That’s pretty much my plan every year.
