Christmas is such a wonderful time of year! December is basically an entire month filled with holiday cheer and goodwill. There are gifts, gatherings, decorations, and more! Christmas also comes with infinite elements that warm the heart, make us laugh, and even make us cry (hopefully of laughter) - and when used to their potential, these elements are found in unforgettable Christmas movies.
Question: I’m really struggling with what to get my friends and family for Christmas this year, any advice?
There is indeed so much pressure when it comes to gift-giving during the holiday season. Finding a balance between how much to spend and getting the perfect present can definitely cause some unnecessary stress.
The story of Hanukkah is quite miraculous. Just a small amount of oil, meant for one night, ended up lasting for 8 nights during the Maccabean Revolt. Today, we celebrate with 8 nights of lighting the menorah, exchanging gifts, spinning the dreidel, and eating delicious food.

“Advice Perfetta: Holiday Food”
Question: Everyone, myself included, loves holiday food! Sometimes, a little too much. What’s your advice about finding a balance with how much to indulge over the holidays?
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, New Years… all in a row! Each holiday, whether you celebrate some of them or all of them, comes with awesome traditions that we enjoy each year. One of those traditions is incredibly good food.
Thanksgiving is a great holiday. We eat amazing food, we get together with friends and family, and we reflect on what we are thankful for. There is a ton to be thankful for that many people take for granted, and on this day, it is nice to make an effort to remember the good in life.
However, this is a comedy blog, so here’s a list of silly things to be thankful for!
We have arrived at the final piece of advice when it comes to texting culture. Debatably the most important thing to pay attention to when texting is: how you use emojis!
Emojis have grown in complexity a ton in the past few years. Before it was all about smiley faces, but now there are a near infinite amount of emojis to choose from.
Question: Pretty simple question; can you hook me up with some tips to have a fun and safe trick-or-treating experience on Halloween?
Halloween is one of Vita Perfetta’s favorite days of the year! What could be more fun than dressing up in an awesome costume and getting tons of free candy with all of your friends??

This week’s topic: Texting Culture: Round 2
In the first edition of our Comedy Cabinet’s Texting Culture blog post, we delved into two points of text message etiquette. First was the proper way to use an exclamation point when messaging. The other was the right way to “LOL”.
This week, we have another fresh unwritten rule of texting to unfold…
Question: The weather in my area is really, really crappy for half of the year. It’s starting to get cold, rainy, and soon it’ll be snowy. It really gets me down! How can I stay positive when every time I step outside I’m uncomfortable?
Unless you live in a place with a near-perfect climate like San Diego or Los Angeles, frequently struggling with the elements is a part of life that you have to get used to.
This week’s topic: Texting Culture
Hate to say it, but there are certain things that a good text message requires these days, and if you fail to put them in, you might accidentally come off as a rude. Nobody knows exactly when or how this happened, but it is our silly reality in the digital age. A few examples…
Question: I’ve been back to school for a month now, and I’m really bummed about it! I miss summer. What should I do to get over my back to school blues?
First of all, this is a totally normal feeling. Summer is such a fun time. Between vacation, extra time with friends and family, camp, a summer job if you’re of age…and of course not having to do any schoolwork, it is pretty ideal! Not to mention the weather is often great. However, don’t lose sight of all the awesome things that the school year brings.
Question: I am terrified to do any Public Speaking, whether it’s talking at a meeting at work, presenting a project at school, etc. How do I get over this?
First of all, it is completely normal to be afraid of public speaking. Most people rank speaking in public higher on their ‘greatest fears’ list than death!
This week’s topic: Holiday Names

Yet, the name sounds like a day in which you should be doing Labor. Might as well call it ‘Work Hard Day’. Should we rebrand? Should we be going from Labor Day to Relax Day or Non-Labor Day?
