Can someone please tell me why Santa Claus is backing his fat Ass up into September?
Took this at CVS tonight... It is still September! WTF mate!
I understand that we should have the Christmas spirit all year long, but this is really going too far... it is seriously embarrassing Christmas is so commercialized that we except this level of advertisement for the holiday.
Even if you are not a Christian (or especially if you are not) and just celebrate the Yule-Time joy of Winterfest, I can only imagine that this is just as ridiculous.
I am not sure what we do about it, and perhaps that is the problem... how do we stop this errosion in a culture which not only doesn't have any sacred icons, but strives to reject anything as being sacred? The answer is, you don't, of course.
This is the icon of our nation... not the Santa Claus in the window, but the notion that there is nothing improper about it, and that the real important objective is market-value. ... A bit of trivia I learned a while back is more relevant now that I have seen this creeping Chris Cringle on display .. the dollar sign with one bar … $ … is a symbol for silver … with two bars it is the symbol for U.S. That is our holy symbol now, and why this type of marketing overdrive is prevalent and accepted in our country
Your eyes in the morning; bright, wonderful and clear. The happiness in them as you look at me. Your smile is almost as bright in the rising golden sun. You have just woken, half of your face still buried in the pillow, so you don’t yet remember all of the disappointments, or the heart breaks. You only remember you love me.
Today I am going to be more, change, move with greater power and focus. Today I will accomplish a goal, and strive to build a dream… so that sometime soon, you will give me your morning smile, in the afternoon.
