Santa Claus, please do us all a little favor

January 3m 2009

Excerpt:

Dear Santa, I'm writing you on behalf of guys everywhere.

First, let me say that I've always dug your style. I mean, it takes a lot of manhood to pull off that whole belly-and-boots look. And, yeah, Uncle Jesse from "Dukes of Hazzard" and ZZ Top had cool beards too ... but they couldn't touch yours with a 10-foot brush. That's the truth. And I'm not just saying all this to butter your cookies.

But I am asking a favor.

Please, please, please persuade our wives that it's OK to leave the Christmas lights up year-round. Bowl games and NFL playoffs are coming up and we really don't want to waste weekends putting lights away.

....

So, please, Santa, give us our Christmas wish for next year ... 11 months early.

Let us keep those Christmas lights up all year.

I totally agree, leave though lights up!

. . . . . after all, it was Christmas Eve when this Santa finally made time to put them up.

It would be much easier to leave them up!

Leave them up!

Leave them Up!

Leave them Up!

There won't be any lights left up late at our house. Kathy sees to that. If we drive by a house with them up, she says, "Don't they know Christmas is over?" It's one of her pet peeves. At least it takes less time to get them down than put up. The first year she and I were married, I left about 6 strings on a tree. A storm came through and following one very close hit, Kathy said the room turned a bright red from outside. You guess it. The lightning hit a pine tree next to the decorated sweet gum, apparently transferred to every one of the strings and then into the ground along the roots. While mowing, I found pieces of strings, sockets and bulbs all over the yard. Most of the insulation appears to have no wire in them. Vaporized copper? 12 yrs. later still find pieces of the strings up in the tree.

I have 3 words for you that many will understand why you should not keep them up all year...Home Owner's Association.

Where I live now, we have to ask them if we can add a flower bed. The next time I move, if I ever do again, I will not go into a neighborhood with such an organization leading it.

10,000 lights on my roof, controllers, cables, extension cords....and the 42 foot tree in the front yard loaded with more of the same. Nothing has been removed. It must come down this week.....I hope.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
