The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

From our family to yours...


You know...Sloth Day.

December 26th.

The most beautiful day of the year, when young and old wear stretch pants, eat leftovers and take naps.

May Sloth Day be filled with joy and lethargy for all!

This is the last Clay Baboons post of 2012. Thanks for reading! I'll see you again in the new year!

  1. Oh how I wish I could be a sloth today. I tried to get this day off, but too many others beat me to it. Alas, on my way to work to be a sloth in my cubicle whilst I pretend to work really hard...only I shan't be wearing stretch pants. Sigh.

    1. This post might have been a little insensitive towards all of you poor folk who have to work on sloth day. Sorry about that!

    1. our blizzard came today. No one can go home yet, so sloth day has been extended. Getting snowed in is great...so long as you don't have anywhere to be!

  4. Wait, it's Sloth Day? What am I doing at work? Oh, right - the US doesn't recognize Sloth Day. Good thing I did all that stuff yesterday...

    Happy New Year!

    1. sadly, sloth day is recognized less and less in Canada as well. The 26th is still officially a holiday, but more and more things are open. So lots and lots of people have to work. Bah, humbug.

    1. Mince pie is sweet, which is really perplexing. I tasted it for the first time last year. I was surprised by the fact that they weren't made of meat. The world is a strange place.

  9. Elastic pants! Where we're you and your sage advice when I was packing for travel!? Might have to put my Jammie's back on!

    1. NEVER travel without stretch pants. I thought that was a rule that everyone lived by!

    1. I really hope that it spreads. It's a non-denominational holiday that celebrates laziness and gluttony. It's very inclusive.

  13. I look forward to seeing your blog in 2013 . . . . I hope you have a great year.

  14. What a lovely holiday! I didn't realize that is what I have been celebrating all along.

  15. Sloth Day. I didn't get to celebrate! I had to work and never got left overs! I'll make up for it tomorrow when I don't get out of bed except to find left overs.

    1. Happy belated Sloth Day! You'll have to eat twice as much today to make up for yesterday...

  19. The best part of sloth day is that you can cover so much of it with gravy.

  20. I had to work on Sloth day and it really made me quite angry. The day after Christmas is more exhausting than the Christmas itself. Sloth day should be considered another paid holiday!

    1. It is an official holiday here in Canada! Unfortunately, most retailers stay open now, so there are fewer and fewer people slothing. Sad face.

  21. Merry Merry Sloth Day to you too! You got it right! Best day!

  22. I was away. I'm still wearing stretch pants. Hope that's ok ;)

  25. Wait - isn't January Sloth Month? I do believe it is. Don't listen to all the 'resolutions!', 'get to the gym!', '10 pounds off by Valentines Day' - its Sloth Month. I think we should all make like bears and hibernate.
