K.A.C. 2015 - T - 12 ...

        After so many years of putting out the K.A.C., I always think I've seen and heard it all regarding the strangeness of the season - and something always comes along to prove me wrong.

     Case in point: a lot of people will take part-time work during the autumn and winter months to raise extra money for Christmas, either for presents or trips, etc. I recently heard about a seasonal job that originally I thought was a joke until I did some more digging into it. If you're tired of your old job and have an artistic bent, here's your new career: a Professional Tree Decorator! 

            At first I thought they meant the outdoor trees for businesses, to make them look more festive for the holidays. There is that, as well, but the people I'm concerned with are the ones who come to your home to decorate YOUR tree. They will either use your own decorations or bring theirs - they will also plump up your tree and make it look more full (think tree hair extensions ... I am SO not making this up)! What the heck - why stop there? If you've gone this far in sheer laziness, you might as well go whole hog. You don't even have to HAVE a tree - if money's no object, they will BUY the tree, bring it to your house and decorate it for you. I imagine for a small additional fee, they would come back on Christmas morning and open your presents for you, as well. All I can think of reading this is the people in their hover chairs in WALL-E who are living life vicariously - brrrr.  

     If you'd like to know more about it (and see just how much a PTD makes this time of year), read on! 

Speaking of trees, remember how we opened this year's edition with the whole Reese's Chocolate Trees kerfuffle and so many people getting upset they don't looke EXACTLY like a tree? Well, Reese's came back with a BRILLIANT response! Take a look!

     And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you shut up your critics!  :)     ****************************************************************************
