Santa’s watching, but it’s karma that’ll get you

This week is Good Karma Week.

If I don’t do something really nice for someone by Sunday, than I’m asking for trouble.

Considering the holidays have made their long-awaited comeback ” like Courtney Love but without the drug addiction ” there’s no excuse not to perform positive actions. I imagine volunteering at Heritage Park’s holiday dinner on Dec. 3 would be one way to contribute to my karma count.

Giving my friends an early wish-list of what I want for Christmas, not so much.

I could add to the Post Independent’s Holiday Fund, as opposed to creating one for myself so I could buy my family really cool presents this year. And I could donate a stuffed animal to the Hotel Colorado’s Victorian Teddy Bear Giving Tree instead of scaring all the kids with the real thing like Borat.

See, I am on a good karma track.

Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s bringing lots of goodies for all the boys and girls “even the ones in their 30s. There’ll be hot cider and cookies, fireworks, carolers and even a cool bagpiper. The Hotel Colorado will be busting at the seams with holiday spirit, so come all ye cheerful and celebrate the official start to the holiday season in Glenwood. All the other elves are doing it.

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set in Grover’s Corners, N.H., from 1901-1913. There’s lots of gossip and small-town drama ” no different than today, except we all have cars and TVs to make us much more mobile and intelligent. I’ve never seen this play, so I’m interested in checking it out because as complicated as our lives can be, we’re a lot like the turn-of-the-century characters. We all go through growing pains as kids, struggle with major life decisions such as marriage (or at least some of us do), and we all must face death. That’s a fact of life best reflected on in a stage production, rather than an ’80s sitcom starring a girl named Tootie.
