Christmas, Here’s Your Cue…

Sit down cross-legged on the floor of the living room and pull a TV tray over in front of you. In the days before video tapes, DVDs, and cable television made it possible to watch Christmas specials year round or multiple times, you had exactly one shot a year at catching Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Year Without A Santa Claus, or A Charlie Brown Christmas. If you missed it, you were outta luck until the next December. If you were like me, then, you were on your butt in front of the television, a Swanson’s pot pie steaming in front of you, with five minutes to spare.

With that in mind, let’s kick off the Christmas season with an appropriate bit of fanfare. (And my fellow Gen Xers, prepare for flashbacks in 3…2…):

The Christmas Season is officially here!

    Bet you don’t remember Geritol commercials “for people with iron poor blood.”
