No more Turkey – I’m “Stuffed”!!!

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV56DJO6pH4 (Watch a different Christmas Carol)  Christmas Day is filled with cheer, laughter, family and food. Too much food in fact and often too much turkey. After traditionally opening our gifts from Santa Claus, we then begin on the food and from then on it’s a day of non-stop eating and drinking!! Merry Christmas to one and all!

What – No Santa Claus…?

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-3oCa07kjM “A Chicago news anchor enraged parents when she announced during a segment on children’s gift expectations that Santa Claus isn’t real. During a conversation with her cohost about how long children should believe in Santa, Robin Robinson, a news anchor at Fox Chicago since 1987, argued that kids should learn early on that Santa isn’t real.”
