'Tis the season for Christmas parties, or holiday parties, depending on which December holiday(s) you and yours celebrate.
If you read me regularly, I'm going to assume you don't have a job, but you may have a friend or family who is throwing such a party that you simply cannot miss. Doing so would cause some awkwardness and stress on your relationship.
Of course, you may not read me regularly, and thus, it's possible you do actually have a job. For you, this is probably the weekend your company is holding its annual Christmas/holiday party.
As much as you don't want to go, when reading this list, you realize it's better than any of the other options laid out, especially watching Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4, which has been overdone and is now brittle in terms of excitement.
Going to your company Christmas party sure beats watching two over-the-hill fighters scrape and swing and miss, especially if you have to pay $70 to watch them do so.
Maybe you're going to ignore my advice and watch the fight anyway. It's OK; I won't rat you out. Good riddance, and Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas and may you rest in peace on Saturday night (but awake Sunday morning) knowing you missed out on so many other great opportunities.
