I Explained Why I Don't Like Christmas On The New Episode Of "See Something Say Something"

*spoilers* It's a bit Grinch-y.

Posted on

I never got presents. I don't love peppermint or the colors red and green together. And it's very, very cold.

So, I decided to complain about it on the new episode of See Something Say Something.
