The Fourth Day of Christmas...

Tired, but inspired by holiday concerts...
This doesn't have to be synthesized, you CAN play this live. I learned that tonight.
Amy Grant is a true a '69 mustang, but for Christmas parties.
Kenny has been with us almost as long as Amy Grant "Home for the Holidays"
also inspired by these quotes by Brock:
Holiday Beverages:
"Wassail is delicious, but can clash with Egg Nog."
Holiday Shopping:
"Well, I can tell you this much...if you can't get it on Amazon (*pause*) then you aren't getting it from me."
Holiday Spirit:
"I like the  holidays! I like holiday spirit! ... I just don't like people."

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.-Isaiah 9:6
In him was life; and the life was the light of men. - John 1:4

On the third day of Christmas...

A little extra time on your hands!

Christmas in the South: If You Can't Fry it, Spray Paint it Gold

Showing off the House: One of the more bizarre things about life in the South is how a dinner inevitably leads to a tour of the house.  This is equally true of antibellum  and double-wide homes.

Advertising the Family Name: This is the only time of year when five bucks and a poinsettia can get the family name in the church bulletin.

Promoting the Family Name: From January to Thanksgiving only real estate agents, attorneys and hookers can freely distribute photos of themselves...Christmas, however, is open season.

Holidays On Ice

The woman at Macy's asked, "Would you be interested in full-time elf or evening and weekend elf?"
I said "Full time"
I have an appointment next Wednesday at noon.
I am a thirty-three year old man applying for a job as an elf.

Speaking of Ice
So many tv specials.  It is hard to pick between them.

Who Dat?
Committed, that's who.

O Holy Third Day
It is only right to include this on this day.  It's not every festive gathering that you hear caroling with a didgeridoo.  Sadly, it is synthesized. Is nothing real anymore?

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16
