boogie to classic carols

Lavender Roaring Fork Clinchfield greeted holiday decorating with the focused enthusiasm of a linebacker at an all-you-could eat buffet. Every year the townsfolk said it looked like Christmas had thrown up all over the mansion but the costume bash that followed was never a clunker. Apathy was not allowed. Chromium rocked in his burgundy and gold elf outfit complete with tasseled hat. If you were bashful, then best lose your invitation, because the spiked eggnog and plenty of mistletoe meant lots of chapped lips. As the host, he was in high demand. All the ladies agreed his tongue tasted spicy.
