30 Days of Christmas: Fun with (and for!) Families...

Theme weeks have officially begun! What’s the best part about the holiday season: Spending time with loved ones around a tree or holiday turkey? How about bonding with co-workers over spiked eggnog or forced gift-giving? What about when both of those things are combined; it's the best of both worlds, isn't it?

Well, here at My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture where it is only one person running the site—usually from my pajamas on my couch—I have to live vicariously through the ones I see on TV. Like on Arrested Development’s second season.
In the episode “Afternoon Delight”, Michael (Jason Bateman) decides to spend more time with his niece (Alia Shawkat) and takes her to the Bluth family Christmas party, where his sister (Portia de Rossi) is just trying to get someone to sleep with her. They end up singing a really inappropriate duet which manages to make the staff more uncomfortable than Gob (Will Arnett)’s constant posturing. And if that’s not enough of a holiday gem worthy of tradition, there’s also a giant version of the arcade game where you use a crane to select a toy when Gob, in a giant banana suit, gets stuck and Buster (Tony Hale) has to use his killer “army” training to help his family.

I don’t know about you, but My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture wants to party with the Bluths!
