K.A.C. 2017 - T - 16 ...

      Oh, dear - this whole 'He sees you when you're sleeping' thing REALLY needs to get dialed back!

     After reliving my moment of radio immortality from my youth yesterday, I'm back with more recent holiday strangeness for you today - let's see what's in Santa's sack for this year's Christmas Potpourri ...

     First up, the Sun (UK) has a list of the 50 Worst Christmas Gifts that people get (and give) every year - how many of them have YOU received?

     Next up, staying with the Sun for awhile, they've been running a series this past month of 'Why is ... ?' articles regarding the holidays. This entry answers why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th, how it ties in to 'Dies Natalis Solis Invicti', and a number of other questions. Give it a look!

      Sticking with the Sun for just a tad longer, they were the first (and so far ONLY) place to break the news that has set everything you THOUGHT you knew about a certain Holiday Icon on its ear! Someone has to break it to you, gentle reader, so it might as well be me - scientific proof that Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a ... wait for it ... GIRL! Read the jaw-dropping expose' below!
     Moving back to OUR side of the pond for a moment, how dedicated are you to the whole Christmas season? Send some cards out? Get some presents? Attend the insufferable holiday party, maybe even host an annual occasion at your place for family and friends? Think that makes you the ultimate Christmas guy? Well, guess again - would you change your name and live the Santa Claus life the whole YEAR ROUND? NO? Guess what? Someone did - and got himself a 'Mrs. Claus' to share the dream - read on!

     We'll close out today's entries with this interesting piece that just ran over at CNN, entitled 'The Strange and Fascinating Stories Behind Your Favorite Christmas Songs.' Read (and listen) here! 


     Coming Tomorrow: We pay tribute to a whole slew of partridges in a pear tree - well, ONE in particular, as we once again set the Wayback Machine to the past and look at Christmas with the recently deceased David Cassidy and The Partridge Family - join us for a groovy time!
