It’s December 1st – how did that happen? Whether we’re ready or not, the Holiday season is upon us. My humorous December Mondays will be focused on the season because it’s the only weeks in the year I’m able to do so.
First of all, a post-Thanksgiving joke:
Thanksgiving is an emotional time. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they see only once a year, and then discover once a year is way too often.
I remember a Christmas years ago when my son was a young kid. I bought him an army tank. It cost about a hundred dollars, a lot of money in those days – and now as well. It was the kind of tank you could actually get inside and ride.
Instead, my son played in the box it came in.
It taught me a valuable lesson. The next year he got a box, and I got a hundred dollars’ worth of scotch.
