Do you love Christmas?

Do you love, love, love it? Want to celebrate it year-round? Find yourself stringing more and more lights every year? Have you watched every single movie version of "A Christmas Carol", and wish they'd show them all the time? Do you know the dialogue to "It's A Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story" by heart? Are you thinking about moving even further North, so you'll have a plausible excuse for wearing those Holiday Sweaters?

Do you love Christmas, and yet, oddly enough, find yourself celebrating the Holidays alone? Now there's Kringle Mingle, the online Dating Service just for you. And, if you're actually good-looking, and/or have an unusually large head, we may even use you in one of our Commercials! Don't delay, join today--and get a free Santa Hat just for applying!
