Happy Christmakwanzaakuh

Merry Christmas! From me to you and yours, I hope that this holiday will be your most wonderful time of the year, with those holiday greetings, gay happy meetings, and so forth.

(Speaking of that song, I have to ask: why does the singer tell “scary ghost stories” on Christmas Eve? Exactly what faith tradition does this? Tell Uncle Ted to save “The Hitchhiker Axe Murderer” for another night. This is Christmas.)

Feliz Navidad!

You're dead on, CG. Same with the "marshmallows for toasting."

And the "Everyone telling you 'Be of good cheer'" part would make me wanna say, "Butt out, moron. I'll feel however I effin' please."

Ghost story: "Christmas Carol"

When homes had fireplaces, Marshmallows were toasted ( among other items cooked as some may have used the fireplace in the kitchen as an oven)

Be of good cheer...yeah right.

...and while we're on the subject...

Listening to the James Taylor/Natalie Cole version of 'Baby It's Cold Outside'...doesn't it seem uncomfortably close to a police transcript of a date rape?

She: "I really should go"
He: "But baby, it's cold outside"
She: "What's in this drink?"

Hmmmmmm....

Hahaha, I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who listens to the lyrics in Christmas songs...

OK, and THANK YOU for mentioning that one part in "Baby It's Cold Outside." That version randomly came on the radio a few weeks ago, and I did a double take when I heard the "What's in this drink" line. I thought at the time, "Surely I misheard that..." And now I know. Creepiness...I wonder who decided to add that extra little "punch" to the song. :-)

Be of good cheer, everyone! ;-)

Wow, all those Christmas songs are way different than some of the lyrics that I heard this season...

like...'Grandma got run over by a reindeer' and 'Daddy, please don't get drunk this Christmas'...

see what happens when you confine your listening to Fred Imus' Trailer Park Bash!
