Winter Solstice

and a line.
 Today marks the winter solstice, the longest night and shortest day of the year. Then it all starts to change. The days will grow longer and the nights shorter.
     But winter is in full force, the minions are on vacation, and Christmas is in DAYS....people. As a subtle reminder of the chaos shopping ensues, I sat through three cycles at a stoplight. Mind you, I didn't actually need the reminder, and while pretending I had a plow on the front of my vehicle would have been nice, I didn't want to go to jail before Christmas. So I sat patiently, and inched to my inevitable freedom. Yes- I made it out. Then drove to another light. It's an evil cycle.
     What's not evil, my line. Better still, if you've been checking in on the countdown you will be rewarded on Christmas day. Oh yeah, I have something planned. It'll be a list of lines you wouldn't have thought came from a Christmas/Holiday movie. It should be fun, think Scrooged, that movie alone has a ton of them. Now I don't expect you to check in on Christmas day. I'm spending it in my PJ's and have made zero plans for anything.
With that said, it's onto business...... by now everyone has a tree, I do, and my cats have taken most the ornaments off the bottom. I find them everywhere. Anyone want a cat or three as a present? Anyone? I gift wrap. Moving on....
     The minions decorated the tree this year, and last year, and I'm pretty sure the year before that, anyway they have their own ornaments. It's cute watching them trying to pick a place to hang them. At the same time this gives you a clue to the cluster of ornaments that are now on my tree. My contribution, I hung the candy canes. It's cute, my tree, and smells good, and there is a small part of me that will be sad to see it go. Very small.

For now, let's dig deep into my red velvet sack of lines.
Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer~ Narrator~ Sam the Snowman~ What's a Christmas tree without tinsel and pretty silver and gold decorations? Can't really call it a Christmas tree now, can you? And think of all the fun and joy that would be lost on Christmas morning, if all the young folks didn't get to see that sparkling, happy tree.
