If you arrive early, feel free to wish passersby a very Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. Be merry and bright.
At about 6:44pm, begin forming a circle around the tall pillar/statue in the middle on Union Square, facing the statue. Gaze upon it as if it’s a beautiful Christmas tree. Feel free to oooo and ahhh.
At precisely 6:47pm, take out your kazoos and play “Jingle Bells”, beginning at the “Dashing through the snow” part. If you do not have a kazoo, simply hum along. Hum just one verse and one chorus, then pause for ten seconds. After ten seconds, Hum a moving version of “White Christmas”, the complete song. When the song has finished, shout “Merry Christmas” and greet the people near you warmly. Spread the holiday joy for three minutes, then immediately dispurse.
I have a small quantity of extra kazoos that I will be handing out to those without. I will be at Border’s Books near Union Square at about 6:15pm in the Computer section wearing a blue Cal hat. DO NOT FORM A CROWD THERE. Spread out, browse, look casual. Only one person at a time should slyly walk up to me and ask me if I know the way to Tustin, grab their item from me then head on out to the rendezvous point. If I have run out of kazoos, I’ll proceed to Union Square myself and be amongst the glad-handers.
See you there!
