It ain't Christmas until...

...I see Mr. Magoo's Christmas Story...

...the Norelco Santa sledding down the hill on his floating heads...

...and a Black Adder Christmas.

1. Buying lottery tickets as Christmas presents.

2. The movie theaters that are opened on Christmas Day.

3. Mickey Mouse and Disney lighteed Christmas yard displays

4. Bob Dylan's Christmas CD

5. The people that wait until the day after Christmas to do all their Christmas shopping.

6. The retail businesses that stay opened on Christmas and force their employees to not spend the day with their families.

7. Cartons of Cigarette with printed Christmas packaging. This used to be a cheap present, but not anymore.

8. The Hairy Simian Chorus. Yep, that's the name. They sing The Little Drummer Boy. A song with way too many Pah-rumpy-pump-pums to suit me!

9. The song "Santa Baby" A tune in which one can't tell if they are celebrating the birth of Jesus or the birth of Marilyn Monroe?

10. All the Christian sects that prevent their children from celebrating the day and getting presents.

Today is Pearl Harbor Day.

All Baby-boomers learned in elementary school this was the day the Japanese attacked the United States Naval Fleet that was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

President Franklin Roosevelt declared this a “Day that would live in infamy”.

I find it odd that CNN, The New York Daily News, The New York Post and The North Korean Times did not bother to make mention of this day.
I was being cynical about the North Korean Times. But what does that say about the other news outlets?
