This one is for those who try and ruin Christmas for everyone. I am taking it on myself to douse you with a liberal helping of Christmas cheer whether you want it or not.

I lay my hat in Lower Queen Anne, where cohabiting young couples, daffy cat ladies and people who have made poor life choices meet. It’s also Seattle’s Christmas Central.
