A Few Christmas Random Thought Fun Facts

Earlier this year, I got tired of people playing Christmas music and indulging in Christmas things too early and not taking the time to celebrate the sincere and gracious holiday that comes before it. To combat this, I ruled that you may listen to Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving IF you have not lusted for it in your heart. If you have, and your appreciation of Thanksgiving has suffered for it, then you must wait until December 1st. This rule extends past music and to other Christmas celebrations.

Well, Thanksgiving is over. And I did not lust for Christmas in my heart. So, guess what?

Yep, I've opened my mind to Christmassy things. And since then, Christmas thoughts have been flooding my brain almost non-stop.

Again - it's okay, it is allowed.

Well, I have a few Christmas oddities that I realized I have and am now sharing. Because sharing is caring and 'tis the season!

1. Two of my favorite (and most quoted) commercials of all-time happen to be Christmas commercials.

This one:

And this one:

2. Whenever I use the phrase: "I'll take it" I either say it like Donna Reed in "It's a Wonderful Life" or immediately think of her afterwards.

3. When I was little, I used to sing that the lyrics were "Later on, we'll perspire as we dream by the fire." It made sense to me. Fire is hot.

4. As much as I love this movie now, when I was little it used to freak me out. At least the intro by David Bowie did. Something about the way he talked. "Walking in the Air" gives me chills.

5. I still think of Frosty whenever I tell someone Happy Birthday. I sometimes tell them like him.


That's all for now. Just a few things that were on my mind. Take this knowledge and tuck it away in your heart. You never know when you're going to be on Jeopardy.

  1. I agree with all of this post. All of it.

    Especially the David Bowie creepy movie. I always thought it was creepy too!

    And I always say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" in the frosty way.
