I’ve always liked to send cards on the strange side– strange enough that they are hard to find. So I started making my own for family and friends. In the spirit of the season, I decided to share some of these cards with my blogging friends. Welcome to my wild (and, um copyrighted) collection. Enjoy.
You met my singing cows above. Like most chorus girls, they are slightly under-dressed. In addition to their obvious assets, they bring new meaning to the old phrase, hoofing it. They happen to be singing Jingle Bells, BTW. Here’s another carol you will be familiar with.
Food is big over the holidays. Everyone has their favorite dishes. Mine is turkey with all of the trimmings! So here, in honor of holiday food, meet Tom.
I will close my section on food with a few choice words from Chef Van Duck.
Then we have Santa’s famous reindeer, who could ask for more faithful, hardworking companions. And what about the most famous reindeer of all– Rudolph with his famous nose. Did I say his? I recently learned a shocking secret.
Male reindeer lose their antlers by December. Females keep theirs until spring. Have you ever seen a picture of Santa’s reindeer without antlers. Conclusion: Rudolph and all of Santa’s reindeer are girls. Here’s another Rudolph fact that the Christmas industry likes to downplay. Working conditions at the North Pole aren’t always the best…
But here is even bigger news– Santa hired a strike breaker.
And finally… can you stretch your mind far enough to imagine a reindeer hunting season.
Beyond its religious significance, Christmas is about giving, right. Well maybe it’s a little about getting. But how often do you find yourself wishing you just had a few more days to prepare? Wouldn’t it be great if you could send the cat out to buy those hard-to-find gifts? Bad idea.
So, I’ll just make a few suggestions for last-minute gifts…
A gift for the guy who has everything?
It’s a custom at Christmas to wish for world peace, right. One of Santa’s elves wishes we would hurry up and get it.
As for Frosty the Snowman, he is wishing for an end to global warming.
And that’s it for my holiday Blog… Everyone in our household, including Peggy, me and the cow wish you and your family the absolute best for the holidays and 2014– Curt
