Today officially marks the end of Christmas season! No more incessant Christmas songs, no more annoying Christmas commercials, no more harried shoppers looking for Christmas presents! Thank God it's December 26th!

Oh, it's not over yet.

People will be returning their gifts and shopping with the gift cards they received. 

I saw a Dec. 26th "doorbuster" commercial for one of the department stores.  Their doors were open at 6am.

I just saw a news item on it.  This woman was being interviewed at 5am outside a mall in 34-degree temps, saying that going to the Hallmark store the day after Christmas to shop for marked-down Christmas ornaments, is "a family tradition".

Oy vey.  Such a tradition!  LOL

Aren't these people burnt-out on Christmas yet??

Most (If not all) Hallmark Stores heavily discount their ornaments on 12/26. I went to one this morning and got their "National Lampoon's Vacation" Ornament for 12 Bucks. Smile

In 1999 Santa "Forgot" to deliver me the final "Man in Space" ornament (A Lunar Rover), so off I went to buy it myself. from 7:00 Am to 10:45 AM I must had visited 15 stores, only to find they were sold out. Church Services began at 11:00, so I "Officially" called off my search. Unhappy Turning a corner about a mile from the church I realized the strip mall located there had a Hallmark Store, so What the Heck, I might as well try this one". I went in and Lo and Behold, THEY HAD ONE!!! I snatched Victory from the Jaws of Defeat! Big smile

We were at Dollar General today to pick up cat litter.  We bought litter, sweetener, and a package of ornaments, half off.  Then, my daughter's employer, who is also her MIL, owns a pool company.  In the cold season, they sell holiday decorations.  My daughter purchased some petite red bows for the tree for me, half off.

The Christmas tree is going to be perfect next year!  We only have a 4 1/2 foot tree, so no, ornament shopping won't become a family tradition!

I forget where I heard this, but it was within the past few days:

The standard round Christmas ball ornament, was created to show a connection between heaven and earth.  I guess that refers only to the shiny ones.  Doesn't quite work with the satin balls.

Boxing Day is a pretty big thing in Canada, but there remains SO much electric out as a result of the recent ice storms...

Boxing Day is not the day you get even with the Censored who gave you a lame gift (or no gift at all). LOL

Its the day you put all of your Holiday Meal Leftovers in a Box, which is given to the needy.

Speak for yourself. I have probably close to 2,000 Christmas songs in MP3 format. Every genre except current pop, hip-hop, rap, and very little country.

I love Christmas music, and listen to it until sometime in February.

I like Christmas songs and Winter Songs, sometimes I listen to both whenever it snows, even if it's long after Christmas.

Remember, last year at this time we were all supposed to be dead because some phoney-bologna planet was supposed to either collide with Earth or knock our benighted little planet out of orbit and send it careening out of the solar system ala. the Moon on the 1970s TV series Space: 1999.
 
Remember this?:

 
Doomsday was "supposed to be" on Dec. 21, 2012; as the phoney-bologna fake "hidden" planet Nibiru collided with the Earth and subsequently caused a cataclysm like no other.
