  1. Ohh, the reindeer joke image :’)
    We still don’t have snow here, which, if you ask me, is a good thing. But as soon as we do get some (I hope not), I’ll hop over to my niece and nephew’s house and show them how building a snow man is done, muahaha >:)

    • Thank you Samantha for commenting.

      We have plenty of snow here in Michigan (Northern USA, part that looks like a mitten). It looks nice, but can be a lot of trouble.

      I am particularly fond of the Christmas Lights joke, when one goes out they all go out–That is so often the case.

      I hope you get a chance to check out the “Its a Wonderful Life (Updated)” video. It is a favorite of mine and I generally embed it in my post around this time every year. It was made for me in 2009 by a friend.

  2. Thanks for the mention and for the kind post you bring us here! I say “Merry Christmas” most of the time and “Happy Holidays” if I think about being politically correct 😉 I think I’m on the nice list for Santa haha ~ Merry Christmas AND Happy holidays to you 😀
