For some, the excitement of the season is pure magic. For others, it’s simply a season that can’t pass soon enough. Where do you fall on the Yuletide spectrum? When should Christmas decorations go up in stores? October. November. December. December 20th. When do you start your Christmas shopping? Black Friday, I don’t want to miss the deals. Couple weeks before Christmas. Christmas Eve. It’s a year-round effort for me. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and time to put Christmas lights up around the house. What do you have planned this year? Same thing I do every year. I’ll have all the lights up in an hour’s time.. I’m thinking about getting all “Clark Griswold” this year and really lighting up the neighborhood. I plan on watching football. I put a poinsettia on the porch and call it done. When you were a toddler, you sat on Santa’s lap and… Laughed. Cried. Tugged at his white beard. Wanted to get away from this old man and his atrociously bad breath. Near the end of the movie "It’s a Wonderful Life," Clarence left a book under the Christmas tree for George. What did Clarence write in it? Lights, please!. You throw quite a party. Remember, no man is a failure who has friends. Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see. What is your favorite Christmas gift to give? My company. Gift cards. I try to look for something personal. I get everybody the same thing. When do you take your Christmas decorations down? The day after Christmas. By New Year’s Day. The first weekend after the New Year. I'm supposed to take them down?. How is it that Santa’s reindeer can fly? Through a phenomenon called flatulent propulsion. There’s no reason, because they don’t fly. It doesn’t matter how; they just can. Jet packs. When you give a Christmas gift, what do you expect in return? A gift of similar value. Nothing. A gift of at least half the value of mine. It would be nice to get at least a “thank you”. Time to curl up to a classic Christmas movie. What’s it going to be? "Bad Santa". "Trading Places". "A Christmas Story". "Miracle on 34th Street".
