Two Droll Christmas Quotes to Which I Am Presently Clinging

I continue to prod on, step by step toward my goal of completing this never-ending year of work, life, school and the daze that came along with all that I just listed.  It’s when I’m in this state of mind that I most appreciate dry, “chuckler” quotes about that which surrounds me.  Currently surrounding me is Christmas.  Therefore, since I’m three posts behind due to an ill-timed illness, this first of three posts will simply to be to share the words of two of my favorite philosophers: Garrison Keillor and Dave Barry.  Here we go:

“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.” ~ Garrison Keillor, from Leaving Home

47-WaHeu.St.91

“In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it ‘Christmas’ and went to church; the Jews called it ‘Hanukkah’ and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say ‘Merry Christmas!’ or ‘Happy Hanukkah!’ or (to the atheists) ‘Look out for the wall!” ~ Dave Barry

So, to you my friends, I wish you Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Cheery Kwanza, or simply… “Look out for the wall!”

Love and sweet dreams, RDK
