Have you figured out the perfect holiday plans?

Will you and your lover be sipping champagne on a hotel balcony as a light snow falls on the Eiffel Tower? Have you crafted a wonderfully dramatic way to come out to your family via an elaborate series of themed gifts? Are you dreaming of the pajamas you’ll put on as you celebrate, alone and eating pizza, just as you’ve always wanted? Well, I’m sorry to tell you that no matter what your holiday plans are—how classy or intimate or convivial—they are shit. Compared to how Lindsay Lohan might spend the holidays, you’re doing everything wrong.

Page Six reports that Lohan is contemplating spending Christmas doing work with refugees in Turkey. Lohan has been doing this kind of work for a while now, shining a light on many of the lives interrupted or worse as the conflict in Syria rages on. It’s admirable work, and now Lohan says she may be spending next week doing more of it. “I am deciding now if I will head back to do more work in refugee camps in Turkey and Antep during or after the New Year,” Lohan told Page Six. So it’s not entirely certain where she’ll be for Christmas, but there is at least a chance that she will be helping war refugees.

So let’s all take that to heart and really try to process it as we stumble through our own holidays. As the world teeters on a precarious cliff, and many of us are overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness and worry, Lindsay Lohan, of all the people, is out there trying to do some good. Sure, we could doubt her motives or the efficacy of the actual work she’s doing. And sure, we could deflect from it by questioning her (admittedly strange) new accent. But maybe we shouldn’t! Maybe we should say, “Hey, good for you, Lindsay Lohan,” and then try to figure out what we might be able to do to help too.
Lohan is hosting a party at some sort of club in Dubai for New Year’s Eve, so she’s still got all that going on. But she’s mixing it with some charity work. So by all means, enjoy your holiday plans. There is no shame in that. Make tender love (or boff like maniacs) in that expensive Parisian suite. Yell, “I’m gay, I’m gay, I’m gay!” while your mother screams and your father sobs in a corner. Order a whole second pizza and laugh like a lunatic as cheese dribbles down your chin and Chip and Joanna shiplap the entire world. But after that? Maybe take a page from Lindsay Lohan’s massive, dog-eared playbook and see what work you can do for others. If If it’s good enough for Lindsay Lohan, it ought to be for all of us.
