A First That Doesn’t Include Jimmyb
I knew it was coming but I’m always surprised when it actually shows up on the television. Last night was the first Christmas commercial I have seen on television this year. Lowes was the culprit that decided that Nov. 8 was close enough to start bastardizing Christmas for personal gain. There is nothing like seeing nativity scenes and Christmas trees being panned over to let people know that Christmas cheer can be bought at Lowes. Luckily I never shop at Lowes, but if I did, I would make up a 4th of July sale sign to hang in their store next time I visited.
I think that the holiday season is really starting to lose some meaning as I get older. I sleep late on Christmas with no excitement to spur me to waken any earlier than 9 am. I’m sure some of you have kids and are probably pulled out of bed quite early on Christmas mourning; to that all I can say is bwahahaha suckers. (I have a remedy for early waking kids by the way. On Christmas Eve….get them super drunk.) I digress though, I know that after a few weeks I will be able to find my Christmas and holiday spirit (the feeling not the liquor). It won’t be hard to find as most television stations will be playing “The Christmas Story”, “Miracle on 32nd Street’, and claymation Santa and Rudolph for the next 2 months.
