Christmas Cheer


Did you know? 

There are currently 78 people living in the U.S with the name S. Claus and one Kriss Kringle? What were those parents thinking?

Mistletoe was used by Druid priests 200 years before the birth of Christ in their winter celebrations. They revered the plant since it had no roots yet remained green during the cold months of winter. 

In the show, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” the Grinch cuts out a Santa beard, but never wears it.

12 million packages are delivered by the U.S. Postal Service every day during the holiday season through Christmas Eve. The busiest delivery day: December 20th.

Finally A Politically Correct Christmas Carol

Deck the halls with boughs of non-endangered plant species
Fa la la la la, la la la la
“Tis the season to be self-actualizing
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our organic apparel
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Toll the ancient non-denominational-winter-solstice-holiday-Carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la 
See the blazing log on non-denominational-winter-solstice-holiday non-endangered wood before us,
Play the harp without unnecessary brutality and join the chorus
Sing we emotionally stable in a collective group effort,
Heedless of the weather patterns despite the effects of global warming,
Fast away the chronologically challenged year passes
Hail the new year without any implicit ageism, ye persons
Dance in a non-ierachical manner in  merry measure,
While I tell on non-materialistic, non-demoninations-winter solstice-holiday treasure.
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Finally- What do you call people who are afraid of Santa?
