It's that most wonderful time of the year yet again, folks: Gheorghe-mas. Our mildly successful faux holiday celebrating all that is Gheorghey returns once again today with this (belated) post. Amazingly, Gheorghe-mas has not only been around since 2008, but we have actually completed all 12 Days of Gheorghe-mas each year since (not a small accomplishment for this elite team of procrastinators).
On previous Day 1s, Big Gheorghe has given us...
- One Hell of a bloggy Par-ty
- One Doofus Dancing (hee, hee)
- One Doofus on a Fake Pony
- A Doofus Dancing (the year Zman stole Day 1 from right under my double chins)
But ultimately, on this 5th anniversary of the creation of the greatest fake holiday since Festivus, it's time to go back to what started it all...

Happy Gheorghe-mas to you and yours, and we'll see you back here throughout the month as we scratch and claw our way through 11 more days. Someone start working on Day 2, por favor.
