Sarah: The Real World: Holidays

Last week, as I spent time with visions of sugarplums dancing in my head, my thoughts took a strange turn. I started to speculate on possible reality t.v. shows with Christmas themes. The only idea that blossomed in my imagination was one show entitled "Scrooged." Yeah, I know the title was directly stolen from a Bill Murray movie. Anyway, Grinch-type people would be surprised on the street or in their workplace, a la makeover shows, and infused with the Christmas spirit. I wondered how the subjects would feel about such an ambush. Would a business exec with no time for charity and brotherly love be more embittered by such a clandestine act of surprise, or touched by the attention of others to his need for love? All considered, I'm pretty sure this show would be a flop. Maybe Fox can add it to their news program next December.

Fox will only take your show if the infusion of Christmas spirit is done by scantily clad elves!
