Christmas is Coming, the Goose is Getting Fat

Ok, with Christmas almost here, and with our extreme scaled back version (kind of like the Extreme Home Edition Makeover, but in reverse) of Christmas, we have had almost zero time spent on “buying” Christmas. I have gotten to the point where I cannot stand to watch the commercials on TV without any of them leaving a bad taste in my mouth. The hyperventilating lady planning her shopping sprees with breathless, almost psychotic anticipation, who used to make me laugh, now simply reminds me of the rabid shoppers on Black Friday who trample the neighbor they should be loving, just to get the last copy of the latest “shoot ’em up” video game they want to give to little Tommy to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
