Welcome to another day at the fun house... No I have not changed the name of my blog, that is just today's working title... Since we are just a week out from Christmas now I have decided to try and keep the next 8 or so blogs as closely related to Christmas or the Holiday season as I can... Which is why today I have decided to write about Christmas Carolers...
Now before you start getting all up in arms about my selection I will warn you that I really have nothing bad to say about these guys... I have nothing bad to say because they have never come to any of the houses I have lived in. As far as I am concerned these so called Carolers are musical unicorns. They may as well be riding around in the sleigh with Santa because they are certainly not Jingle Belling down my street... I wonder though, knowing our country it may be illegal at this point to Carol in the streets, or at least upgraded to not-politically correct... I mean just because someone wants to sing Rudolph the red nose reindeer on your yard does not mean that you need to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior people... Put the DVR on pause and go toss them some candy canes... I think I am just bitter because I feel like the joys of Christmas seem to disappear or at least lessen as I get older... I'm still pissed off at my mom for ruining the whole Santa thing for me, I could do without the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, but Santa, I mean they put Santa on the Coke bottles. He has to be real... OK let me get back on track here, Christmas Carolers, where have you guys run off too? I just watched a full season of "Glee" and the first few episodes of the "Sing Off". I know people are still interested in singing... So why wont someone come do it in my yard???
Is this really too unreasonable? There has to be some local school or local church that is forcing its people to dress up like they were in Les Mis and gallivant up and down the streets spreading Christmas joy. Or was this indeed something that was only ever done in the movies? Was I really fooled into believing that someday I would have a happy go lucky bunch of do-gooding strangers using my sidewalk as their stage in my own private production of the Nutcracker... Christmas is supposed to be about giving and still 25 years into my existence I have yet to be given the gift of Christmas Carolers. I feel like I have been robbed of part of the Christmas experience that I have been sold by the movies. How about the rest of you? Have any of my readers ever had the good fortune to have their own set of carolers? I promise I wont be mad, but I may show up at your house to see how joyous the situation must be.
Lets be honest though, next to the Publishers Clearing House showing up to your door with a million dollar check is there really anyone else you would rather see out there? I mean they may be selling you religion like the J-hovas or the the Morms, but at least they strap some fancy melodies to it and don't force their way into your house. They are like the Trojan horses of religious delivery, go Christians!... Really I am just a sucker for the Carol of the Bells song, you could show up on my doorstep in the middle of May and sing this too me and I'd still be as happy as a clam... *Hint Hint*... So, in conclusion, you guys share with me any stories of carolers that may have made it out your way... I need to see if these people really exist or not!
