Senseless holiday sarcasm: HalloThanksChristmaKkah strikes again.

The original dysfunctional family.

October, November and December once contained three distinct holidays in the USA.  The metamorphosis from weeks between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and one giant blur, has happened during my lifetime.

It’s no wonder people are confused, depressed that their lawn decorations are inadequate, and driven to on-line shopping for the last 3 months of the year.

NO!  The baby was born in December, not conceived.  And it isn’t the deer that rein reigned over heaven.

People!  You’ve got to get a grip on it!   

October is for fun.
