Holidays Meet Humor- The True Meaning of Christmas….

This has become the Christmas of boycotting….everyone is telling everyone else where they can shop andchristmas-door where they can’t shop.

It doesn’t matter why or what  you’re protesting. You can’t buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks, underwear, ties, beer, vodka, cereal, cookies, soda, anything in Target, anything on Amazon, gift cards for anywhere, coats, shoes, take out food, and some of these things and places are being boycotted on both sides because no one can seem to get their facts straight.

So we are all going to have a Christmas where we go “commando”,  can’t get drunk, can’t have coffee to help with our hangover,  have no presents to complain about, can’t go out with those restaurant gift cards to those places we would never go without a gift card, won’t have a warm coat to wear or a tie to wear to church, no cereal for breakfast, so somebody better be cooking Christmas breakfast AND dinner….like that would ever happen. And think of all those  people who don’t even celebrate Christmas  who can’t call for take-out on Christmas Day?

And no cookies for Santa, unless you’re one of those crazy people who still bake, are there still people like that? I sure hope so cause those elves who make cookies are probably out of work right now.

This was not well thought out, people. It’s Christmas, for heaven’s sake. How are we supposed to buy a bunch of crap for others that they don’t want or need if we are boycotting all things capitalistic?

Yet, I am inspired by this. I think we will all come to find the true meaning of Christmas.

See how nice our underwear is, George?
See how nice our underwear is, George?

To paraphrase Clarence in It’s a Wonderful Life…… You see, George, you’ve really had a wonderful life and some wonderful underwear. Don’t you see what a mistake it would be to throw it away?

The true meaning of Christmas….is about not throwing out your old underwear until you have new ones….otherwise, the term “Jesus!” takes on a whole different meaning.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Wonderful New Year to all. I wish you joy, happiness and clean underwear wherever you go!

  1. This would be a great time to stop buying stuff and use the money to make donations to important causes in our loved ones’ names. That would be a much more appropriate way to celebrate the holidays.

  2. Oh dear – it just gets worse doesn’t it Cathy? Poor Starbucks (everybody’s go-to coffee place when they’re desperate!) I remember all the hoo-hah over them changing the colour of their cups a while back! I’m just resorting to cold hard cash this Christmas – then the receivers can sew it into underwear, bake cookies with it, or use it to pad out last year’s winter coat!

  3. This is so true Cathy, I always bake cookies while wearing my new underwear! Great post! Happy Holidays and New Year to you!

  4. It’s kind of a cool way to see the boycotts, isn’t it Bill? Maybe it will bring back the spirit of Christmas!Merry Christmas to you and yours, Bill. You brighten every day I read you!!!

  5. Maybe, as the Grinch said, Christmas doesn’t come from a store.

    Wishing you a merry Christmas, Cathy, and a little bit more.
